Protect your oiling system with confidence with our ECS Stainless Steel Oil Pan! Able to handle more abuse than the original stamped steel pan, all while retaining major ground clearance and increasing oil capacity simultaneously. If you've ever worried about rocks or debris in the road compromising your fragile oil pan, this is MUST HAVE PROTECTION!
Not just another aluminum pan susceptible to cracking, our pan is beefy! Made from 11 gauge (1/8") T304 stainless steel and then 100% TIG welded and pressure checked for a perfect seal. To further ensure optimum sealing capacity, the mounting flange is thick, laser cut from 3/16" thick T304 stainless and then post machined and checked for flatness to our tight tolerances.
Added strength and modularity is added into our design with six sturdy side gussets that are welded to the side walls and mounting flange surface. An OEM M14x1.5mm drain plug bung is welded into the factory location as are provisions for the oil level sensor, if equipped (see our Billet Blockoff Plate if needed - ES3140168). Topping off our pan is a laser cut "ECS" logo in the front corner for a subtle finishing touch.
Increasing oil capacity and ensuring oil temps stay in the safe zone were incorporated into our design. By bringing the sump further forward we were able to utilize more volume, approximately 1.0 - 1.5 Liters of added oil capacity, which helps extend oil service intervals and maintains more consistent operating temperatures.
We also took our design a step further and added an integrated baffle plate to keep engine oil fixed around the oil pickup tube. Not available on OEM oil pans, our baffle plate helps to minimize oil starvation during hard cornering and braking.
Our pan is in-house designed and tested, made in the U.S.A. and engineered for the elements. A long-winded design journey that took several design revisions and multiple prototypes, we're proud to finally offer a SERIOUS oil pan with SERIOUS protection to the VW/Audi market!
