For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

SpeedMaster Rear Sump Oil Pan impressions...

Post  erioshi on Wed Oct 21, 2015 11:03 pm

Basically, it appears to be essentially the same dimensions as the pan Rob shows in his post below (borrowed from his build thread), but with one difference.  The outside depth including flange on my pan was just a bit over 1.5 inches.

Here's a link to the pan:

5.75" total depth and 6 qts. Extra 0.5 Qts when I install the oil relo kit. I talked with Jason and it's a new design that they are in full production and will have new stock in 2 weeks. He's going to email me the part # and I'll post. He also said the new batch of pans will have an extra baffle for road race. Mine has a double trap door baffle as is.

That was the good news.  Unfortunately the rest of my impressions are not quite as favorable.  The cost was $230 plus shipping for the pan with an included pick-up.  I wasn't expecting too much for that price, and my low expectations were amply rewarded.

The aluminum is all essentially unfinished sheet metal, with the exception the flange.  The mating surface of the flange has been worked, but it looks like it was "finished" with a hand grinder.  The flange finish still has scratches that will probably require sealant, as well as a gasket, to prevent oil from seeping out.  Disappointing, but something that can probably be fixed with some re-work.

The baffling consists of a single barrier running across the width of the pan, with a single trap door made with a small, cheap (brass?) door hinge (instead of a piano style hinge) with a flat aluminum plate riveted to it with large gaps around the edges.  Not exactly the best baffle set-up I've ever seen.  I'm not sure how much it would help in a long, sustained corner, or on a track were transitions and momentum would tend to keep the oil moving around the edges of the pan.

Finally, the pick-up isn't exactly confidence inspiring.  The oil drawing "box" has a cheese-grater style screen with the internal round tube coming right down to the face in such a way that there is almost no point in having the "box" at the end at all.  It will probably work, but doesn't inspire confidence.

I'm not building a race car, but I would like to know I could do a track day almost anywhere without being afraid for my engine.  I'm not sure this set-up will give me that.

I will add pictures when I get a chance.

I'll let you know once I've installed it. My build has mostly consisted of parts gathering so far, as work has been keeping me very, very busy. However near the end of this month I should be able to make some time available to actually start working on my project.
