Which LSX Oil Pans Will Fit?

Recommended Posts

I am looking for an oil pan, and I know the most common one to use in an S30 conversion is the F body pan. However, the CTS-V pan isn't much different dimensionally. I was just wondering what kind of clearance (k member and ground) those using the JTR swap kit have.

 

Here is a quick link to the dimensions of the pans.

The quicker the reply, the better, as i located a STEAL. I might buy it just cause.

Just to put the info out there. I'm running a c5 corvette oil pan (bat wing). It fits great. I don't have to worry about header clearance though because I'm running forward facing manifolds for a turbo.

 

I see. I might see if I can use stock manifolds (or truck manifolds) for the time being, as it will be NA for a while. ;)

I know for sure that '98-'99 F-Body manifolds will work, done it for a customer trying to save a few bucks. I cut off the stock collector flanges and welded on a generic 3-hole for ease of making something that will bolt up to an exhaust.

Ok. If I do any cutting and welding to the manifolds they will be getting V-bands. I am done messing around with slip fit and tri-flange. Both are such headaches.

LHX do a custom cast one that looks promising for our S30 and S130 Z cars, Ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/LHX-Custom-Cast-GM-ls1-swap-oil-pan-conversion-LH8-ls2-/320554389641

I believe it measures 5.5" high at the back, 13" long for the thin front part which is 1.5" high but check on all that and post it up.

yeah, I guess you could just throw money at the problem? F-body pans can be bad for around $200, complete. That's the route that I ended up going. Those aftermarket pans are nice, If you MUST have one, but I think that's money that could be spent on something a little more prudent.

Cable, which windage try do you use on the LS2 with the F body pan?

 

 

If you are running the F-Body pan, its best to use the matching windage tray. The truck tray can be modified to fit, but they aren't pricey enough to bother.

04 GTO here as donor and NO way that pan will fit.  Bought a camaro pan w/pick up on eBay and windage tray from Summit.  GTO pan is in the parts washer and will go on eBay soon.  Have not tried the Vette pan, I went with what was for sure to work.  JMHO, Richard.
