E30 5.0 Modified Oilpan: Out of stock

It's become too difficult to get these made for a reasonable cost and good quality (leak proof). Here's the picture of the oilpan modifications. I recommend getting a front sump 302 oilpan and having your local welder cut & weld it according to the drawing below. It is modified to fit the E30 chassis, clearing the steering rack and the engine crossmember. You may want to expand the sump left & right to create more capacity.
- Requires a front sump pickup, available from Summit Racing, part #MEL-68-S. You will have to bend the pickup slightly to get it to clear. (Once you bolt on the pickup and try to fit the oilpan it will be obvious how to bend it)
 - Finish: bare steel
