Oil Pan

May 24th, 2009 No comments

Since 315 will be encountering some hard corners, I got a proper oil pan for the job. I opted for a pan from Armando’s Racing Oil Pans. Armando worked for Aviaid for many years, and produces a high-quality product for a decent price.

The traps at the bottom are doors that hinge inward. They let oil in any time, but when the car is in a corner, they keep the oil from being pulled over to the side of the pan (away from the pickup). A stock oil pan won’t do this – it will allow the oil to move away from the pickup in a corner (or heavy accelleration), and the system will go dry for a moment – damage!
