Default K-Tuned Oil Pan Kit

K-Tuned Oil Pan Kit

MSRP: $119.99 (Oil Pan, hardware, and magnetic drain plug)
MSRP: $99.99 (Oil Pan ONLY)

Applications: Direct replacement for all K20A, K20A2 and K20Z1 engines. Plus K20A3, K24A1, K24A4 engines which originally had a steel oil pan. May fit other hybrid applications where an RSX Type-S oil pump is used. Please inquire with us before ordering if you are uncertain about fitment.

If you have been playing around with the Honda K-Series engine long enough chances are you have seen a broken oil pan or two. Part of the problem is that a K20A, A2 or Z1 engine mounted in a K-swapped car (EG/DC2/EK) sits approx. 3/4" lower when compared to the older B engine. The other problem is the oil pan on these engines is made of cast aluminum which does not hold up well if it is hit by something hard. The result is usually a crack or even worse, the pan shatters and takes off a piece of the block girdle with it.

K-Tuned Oil Pans are made with thick gauge powder coated steel which more than likely will just dent if they get hit. Choose to buy our complete kit with oil pan, magnetic drain plug with K logo and a set of 16 bolts which are needed if installing on a K20A/A2 or Z1 engine. Most people forget or don't know that the original bolts for the aluminum pan are longer and will not work with the steel pan. The other option is to buy the pan only with no drain plug or bolts, which is perfect for guys replacing an existing damaged pan or who are building a new engine. To ensure the pan is sealed properly, we recommend using either Hondabond or Permatex Ultra Grey Sealer, part number 82194.

Please PM [email protected] if you have any questions.

Looks great! I assume that baffles like the Jun/Blueprint racing style baffle will work with this pan since it bolts to the windage tray and doesn't sit inside the pan. Can you confirm this?

Real Interested in this. But I assume you don't offer one with the option of another drain/fitting for turbo oil line?

I'm surprised no one has asked this - will this fit with an ERL S2K pump? How does it compare dimensionally to the K24 pan that is commonly used with the ERL S2K pump?

Whats the difference between a stock steel k24 pan and this? Better question, why would someone buy this over that?

That part did stand out a bit the first time but being a newb I haven't internalized what can go with what yet. Thanks.

Now about an oil baffle...

We have not confirmed fitment with any baffles at this time. From what we can see, if an OEM K20A3/K24A pan fits with the baffle you have our pan should also work.

Turbo Drain service is available from us for an additional $30. You must clearly show us where you want the bung welded. Size will be 10AN.

Dimensionally from what we can tell our pan dimensions are very close to the OEM K20A3/K24A pan. However, we have not confirmed fitment with an ERL S2K pump yet...

In time we do plan to make a baffle. Maybe we will have some time in the coming year to work on it.

Sorry if i'm being a dunce but after reading the description it definitely doesn't say "stronger" material than OEM ( i think its the same material - mild steel ). I also just read and found out the oem k24 steel pan works perfectly fine with type-s Oil pump mod.

Again, sorry if I missed it but could someone tell me what the advantage of this pan vs the oem k24 pan as I'm always looking to upgrade my future swap?

Both the OEM pan and our K-Tuned pan are made from mild steel and coated. In the side by side comparison we did the OEM pan and ours are extremely similar. We did not measure, but our pan did feel a tad heavier which leads me to believe the steel may be slightly thicker. As far as an advantage over the OEM steel pan, there really wouldn't be anything else. This is simply a new oil pan and in most cases we expect orders to come from customers that are replacing damaged pans or building new engines. Having the bolts and the magnetic drain plug in the kit ices the cake.

Did that statement not make people scratch their heads? Most likely meaning it wasn't actually tested properly? Why would you chance it when you can use the OEM steel pan?

Will this work with the K24A2 or K20Z3 oil pump (with balance shafts)? I like having them on a daily to reduce vibrations. I'm getting old. Lol. Have tons of grey already.
