Racing oil pan for mud

Post  kjett on February 14th 2013, 8:41 pm

Looking for a recommendation for a good oil pan to run on my mud truck. I've been looking at the canton, moroso, and the Lem pans. I really would like the Lem pan, but worried if it would hold up in the mud with dirt and rocks getting kicked up under the truck. So what would you guys recommend? My last pan was a factory 10qt truck pan that I put a baffle in and ran a windage screen. I want something a little better that will help keep the oil under control during all the bouncing. So what do you think?

Rear sump?

Yes sir, and it can not have a kick out on the driver side so I will clear the drive shaft.

I use the Moroso 20614 but it has a kick out on both sides.
It clears my drive shaft alright. C6 w/205 T-case f-150 chassis.

I've got that same pan, and it is decent, but talking to a guy this week about modifying it, to get the sump deeper.

I guess I'm paranoid, but i like the extra capacity of my old factory/modified 10qt pan. Granted, I only keep 9qts in it just to make sure the oil doesn't slosh back up into the crank when I bounce or go fly in the air. I just wish there was an off the shelf 9qt rear sump drag race pan that doesn't have the kick outs. As it stands now, with my front drive shaft cage in, I have about 3" of clearance. How much clearance is there from your drive shaft and the pan with the kick outs?

I have about an inch of clearance and I've never hit it.

As far as I remember, the only "kickout" on the driver side of that pan is at the sump which only adds capacity and is nothing like a "power Kickout" up near the pan rail usually on the passenger side.

Personally, for catalog pans, I prefer the Moroso #20612 mainly because of its all around depth used with a MPG oil (half) tray.

If the OEM pan is working well for the engine combo and application, why not keep it and execute the further mods to that pan so as to suit your desires? (Not to say that there isn't more power to be gained from a more exotic pan upgrade.)

Randy, that is basically the type of baffle that I welded into my truck pan, then I run a Canton 20-936 bolt in screen. With this pan, I'm assuming I'd still need to keep the screen?

Paul, I keep reading on here that a full race pan is worth some extra hp over the bolt on pieces like I went with on the last motor, which is the reason for me looking to upgrade with the new motor. My old pan served me well, just wanted to make sure I'm going in the right direction to make up some lost hp. The old 466 was all about making the motor as "factory" looking as possible and keeping the iron heads. The new 488 is going to have A heads, so that theory goes out the window. Might as well make it look like a full race motor then Very Happy

NO screen with the MPG tray as it also mounts to the main caps.
