    oil pan spacer?

    Curious idea but i saw on my Porsche forum about an oil pan spacer for them. from what i understand it is basically to help oil temps by adding additional oil in the pan, i figured it could be taken a step further by adding an oil return to it aswell if thick enough. the only issue i can currently think of for this is is the brace that is right there would also need to be spaced down and you would need longer bolts to accommodate this. (im only mulling this over because i am having custom parts made already and he told me that he would have a good bit of alumina leftover to make other parts with it if i wanted for marginal cost.) on that note would anyone want to go in on a set of Wilwood brake brackets? $300 a set maybe cheaper if there is interest. youll be on your own to get the discs machined though.

    on secondary thought i think this may move the exhaust to close to the ground when done aswell another inch on a lowered car.

    I've just run an oil cooler pre supercharger or turbo mounted to the radiator.

    this was going to be my setup and probably will now htat i thought of the exhaust issue, unless i decide on hood pipes. just a thought to throw out there i guess. i was running on that *when in rome* ideal since it was gonan be a cheap thing for me.

    Also, you can't space the pan down without running into the ID of the crank pulley.

    It would be much easier to just cut the pan and weld in areas to add volume. You could also add some 1-way doors for track work as well.

    just make a horizontal baffle. cut hole for the oil pickup and dipstick. pan temperatures rarely get past 225*F unless you are doing road course (WOT for 15 minutes basically). hot summer after noon i had up to 270*F once.
