    Just came across this oil pan from OBX on Ebay today.

    My friend bought a OBX header, and fitment sucked horribly, so I'm just curious if anybody has tried there oil pan out?

    If so, what were your thoughts on initial fitment? was it a simple screw-on process, with no modification??
    Please don't post if you havn't tried it out, or at least seen the install first hand.

    Thanks
    _Andrew

    You typically get what you pay for in the engine world. Do you want to be the one who spent good money on a crappy oil pan?

    not the BEST prices, but you can see what good, well built oil pans go for.

    OBX is junk. As mentioned above, you get what you pay for.

    I wouldn't get it, simply because when you swap oil pans among d-series, you have to use corresponding oil pickups(ie: A6 vs Z6).

    That's not that big of a deal... you can find D series parts for pretty cheap.

    Definitely do NOT buy an OBX pan though.

    Next time, check the dates on stuff before you post. This thread is 2 1/2 years old...
