The notch needed for the newer cars might make the s2k impossible. We will try and test fit it however, from what we can see the notch needs to be were the s2k pump sits.^ thats good news, my car (03 accord) came with a k24 so already buying one that will fit will be perfect, also waiting to hear more about the s2k pump with this oil pan. :up:

what he saidHas anyone with an ep3 thought of notching their frame?
This pan is being built to cater to multiple chassis. Most of the chassis in which this pan will be used (EG, EF, EK, DC, ETC) do not have clearance issues.
Also, 90% of the users using the s2k pump have swapped vehicles most likely in early chassis.
Unfortunately, it is difficult to manufacture a product to cater to EVERY vehicle that uses that type of engine.
As for the FG guys. Manufacturing a pan that will have the mount location on it would be very difficult and expensive because it would have to have laser cut 1/2" thick side walls to accomodate the torque being loaded onto the pan itself. At that point, the pan becomes a structural part of the vehicle and it is just a very difficult product to design.
As jeff has stated, i have left canton but only due to personal reasons. I will try to help answer questions if jeff cannot.
I'd also like to know if the notched pan for the S2000 pump will fit a CM5/CL9 chassis.
So is it safe to say it will fit the ep3 chassis?
We aren't building an aluminum version, we are building the steel version. What I was referring to is the aluminum version of the stock pan has the correct version of the clearance notch that we need as opposed to the stock steel version is a little more vague and general with it's notch.I think most people would prefer a steel pan over an aluminum...there have been many people here who have cracked an aluminum pan on the road. I'd rather have a dented pan than a blown motor
If the notched version can be used with the S2000 pump, I would also like to be on the list. Please PM me the details if it's possible.Awesome! we are only 3 or 4 more away from being good to go. We are hoping to get this wrapped up soon and get the production started!
