It's amazing that Chimpy still has time to work on his Project Blackout since he's so busy doing, uh, actually, we're not actually sure what he's busy doing. We can confirm, though, that he often parks like an idiot on G4, taking up multiple spots and blocking people in without telling them. He still swears that one day his black DA will be complete, and all it will take is one more piece to finish his on-going puzzle. Then, and only then, will Project Blackout be revived from the permanent driveway ornament it has become back into the street machine it once was.
Moroso Oil Pan
When it came time to choose an oil pan for the 2000cc LS, we had more than a few options. Since the engine will be turbocharged courtesy of Full-Race, we wanted to increase oil capacity to help aid in pulling heat away from the reciprocating assembly. We also wanted to use a steel pan to help establish a perfect Tupperware seal. Lastly, and of paramount importance, the pan had to be baffled to keep the oil at the pickup, and not sloshing all over the place.
Scope out the ultimate B-series oil pan: the Moroso 20910. It has everything we're looking for-and more. Yeah, it's not blinged out polished aluminum, but all that lightweight goodness is down low, below the roll center.
This Moroso is one of the only aftermarket pans that allows you to use the OEM Honda gasket. The raised indentations on the flange are also just like OEM, which allow the gasket to be centered perfectly. And there's no need to purchase an additional pickup, since the pan is engineered to be used with the OE variety. We were pleased to find both a turbo oil drainback bung as well as an oil temp sensor bung welded on for good measure.
A pan that offers all this can be a mission to find off the shelf and in stock. Lucky for you and us we have Summit Racing. One call, and 48 hours later, we had the pan.
