Just about everything a person wants to know about an LS oil pan is covered in here, but (and I could have missed it somewhere in the 700 posts) why do some of the truck pans have a steel plate bolted to them like the first pic in t post #1? Is there something under the pan on some vehicles that could make contact with the pan in that area? (4x4 diff, maybe) If it's there to strengthen the pan, which doesn't really seem likely, I'll leave it on there. If not, I was gonna remove it to clean up the looks of the pan a bit.

I'm looking at the Sikky front or mid sump stuff but I just cant see that much money for an oil pan, and still needing to do an external filter. I'm swapping an LS into my 75 Dart Swinger, and would rather throw an f-body or GTO pan(maybe a batwing corvette pan if it fits) in with some modifications to save a few bucks. But if all else fails, take some measurements and maybe see if the stuff you guys make will fit.

If they are the only ones with the pan you need, you don't have much choice. These are hand-made for the most part

I am resurrecting my 89 silverado build. I have a 2014 gen v l83. Can I use the stock pan? I see that the older pans will not fit so what would be my options?

Anyone had any luck with the steel jegs performance pans?

The reason I ask is because after measuring my 75 Dart clearance, a mid sump is definitely required to pull it off without hacking the stock k-member to death. The closest thing I've found to work would be the sikky mid sump style 1. But I can buy the jegs pans for $150 shipped cut/flip/reweld the sump from rear to center and modify the stock truck pickup tube and have a center sump pan for about $400-$500 cheaper than that, which makes running the remote oil filter setup an easier pill to swallow.

Idea behind the modification.

Default New idea

To kinda piggy back the idea I had mentioned a while back. I took the hotrod oil pan, cut the sump, flipped it around and welded it back together. Then I added the Camaro pickup and it placed it right where it needed to be in the center sump and ta da! Center sump pil pan for less than $200. Only caviat is you need the remote oil filter mount. Which can be put together for pretty cheap. Plus it helps clean pesky kmember and venter link clearance issues. Here are some pics of the process and it installed on my 75 Dart.

Anyone any comments on the Speedtech pan, other than it's bloody expensive ?

I'd like to change what I have for a few reasons. This seems an almost perfect fit, seems to hold a decent quantity of oil, the -12 fittings are ideal for what I need etc etc. And it has a lower profile front end compared to anything else...again, this is ideal as clearance is very tight here for my steering rack and I'd probably need to modify anything else.

But what the **** makes it so expensive compared to other oil pans ? Internally it just looks like a cheap *** square box with trapdoors which is same as most of them use and what I currently have ( modified Autokraft, cut/welded for the aforementioned steering clearance reason and also adapted for remote filter )
