    What moroso oil pan do you have? There are two diffrent one's. The first and most comman type is the drag racing one. The other is the road racing one. There has been many guys on HT that have tried using the drag racing one, and end up getting oil starvation in the left hand turns. My freind has the road racing type, and he has never had a problem.

    they seem very promising, and yes I would suggest the road racing unit.

    i can't find any seperate part numbers on summit or moros's web site.

    they make 1 generic b-series pan, and sell 2 variety's of sumps/pickups- b16/ls, and gsr/ctr/itr that clear the oem girlde and have different mouting feet locations.

    i'm a bad example, as i have horrid oil pressure not realting to a pan at all, but i see no reason why it will not be better than a stock pan.

    it has trap doors that don't let the oil rush forward on braking, and on side towards the middle of the underside to prevent oil from going to the right on left hand turns. on right handers, it pushes it into the sump area.

    i think the people you are taling to don't know what they are tlaking about.

    as far as my pan not fitting at first, i had an ls/b16 pickup, not a gsr/itr/ctr one that i needed for my gsr bottom end.

    Moroso actually makes 3 oil pans for the B series. 2 wet sumps and 1 dry sump. Their part numbers are -

    Well the one i have is old so im going to assume that i have a drag pan since the other two must be new. So has any one ever had oil probs and yes b you are correct it has baffles for braking and lefties. any one ever had troubles.

    for dd and curvy roads its fine, but for road courses, no. If you want a pan that will protect you from oil starvation, go with the Mugen, spoon, find an actual road racing version of the Moroso, J'sracing, or baffle your own.
