Well I thought I'd put a post up about this since I hadn't seen any mention of it.

I needed to replace my oil pan on my engine build as I damaged it in shipping due to road conditions and how I had it loaded. I found this pan and figured why not as it looks better than stock. It's constructed from 3/16" aluminum and welded inside and outside. Fit was great as well with only one bolt hole being just slightly off but it wasn't an issue. I have to modify the lip of the pan at the back to clear my main studs but with stock bolts it's not an issue and there's plenty of meat to allow for the clearencing. Here's some pics of the pan mounted and unmounted. I didn't fully secure it as I'm going to be getting it painted and I might run a sealer on the inside so there's no transfer from the aluminum to the oil and to prevent any type of corrosion.








Let me know your thoughts. Personally I like it.

I do a lot of back country roads and from all the dents in my dual-layer OEM oil pan I don't think I'd trust a soft aluminum oil pan. Sure is shiny.

I know my stocker wasn't dual layer. But my truck doesn't leave the pavement much.

My truck is a 6.0 and they're all dual-layer. At least '04 and up. How do I know that? Because I cut a hole in mine. They make one for the 6.0 also and I would like to see them actually prove that it reduces oil temperature that is actually measurable. Would look cool anodized.

Fair enough. Ya it would be cool to see results but it's unlikely anyone would pull an engine just to swap a pan.

Yes too bad they didn't make that pan in two pieces so it could be installed without screwing around with the whole engine.
