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.

It'll work, but the sump will hang about 2" below the crossmember.

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/...2-/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.

This thread should be a sticky to avoid noobies from starting new threads every few months about it.

The '04-present C6 Corvette LS2/LS3 oil pan works nicely and has better oil control IMO.

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.

Does anyone know if the stock LS2 oil pan will work?


Loose is fast and on the edge of out of control.

Since the LS2 came in several vehicles, Corvette, Trailblazer SS, SSR, and GTO. Of all those only the Corvette version will work properly in a S30.
