This package couples the factory oil pan for the Chevrolet Camaro SS, Chevrolet Caprice PPV, Chevrolet SS and Pontiac G8 with Improved Racing’s trap door oil pan baffle. This is a great pan for swaps, if you have the space for it, because of its high oil capacity of 8 quarts.
The complete swap kit includes everything you need to swap to this oil pan: the oil pan, Improved Racing baffle, dip stick, dip stick tube, pickup tube, and windage tray.
The graph below plots oil pressures with the factory baffling (in red) versus the Improved Racing EGM-204 baffle (in black). A complete chart with oil pressure, RPM and lateral G-force plots can be seen in PDF format by clicking here, or as a JPG image by clicking here. A second chart that adds longitudinal G’s (acceleration/braking, in orange) can be seen by clicking here.
Old part number EGM-411.
