    Quick question that has been boggling my mind for the last few days...

    Will a first generation b16a oil pan work properly on a b18a bottom end? Also, will the oil pickup from the b16 flow enough? Ive always used the b18 pan/pickup, but my pickup is damaged and I have no oil pan now.

    I'm pretty sure if you use the corresponding pickup for the pan you should be ok.

    Did you use the oil pickup from the b16?
    I am asking because my ls pickup is damaged and I will not use it.
    My b16 is a first gen. b16a. 1991 to be exact.
