I do not sell the baffle(s) loosely... the only way this product ships, is welded into a pan.
Each one is hand made for the applications listed. The pan pictured is a K20Z3 pan but all variants include two vertical baffles with trap doors that allow oil to move into, but restrict oil movement away from the pickup area; i.e. during left and right turns (FWD) or braking and acceleration (RWD). The horizontal baffle helps to control oil from sloshing up the front or rear under braking and acceleration (FWD) or during left and right turns (RWD).
The baffles are placed below the oil level to aid in keeping the oil pump pick-up submerged. Extended high RPM turns can still create problems being oil is being pumped at its fastest rate and not returning to the pan floor due to being pinned in either a corner (relative to the turn) of the valve cover or oil pan. Being you cannot add capacity, I strongly recommend an Accusump in these scenarios.

Contact for ETA - If you are interested in a specific design that varies from this, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Balance shaft pump baffles look totally different due to the pumps size and the space it occupies, images are just a reference. For those choosing a baffle for the Type S pump, the vertical baffle that the pump pickup passes through is extremely close to the pump and will require the removal of a small casting bump. Some twisting/ warping of the pan rail has been known to
occur; despite the use of a heatsink/ fixture and waiting for the pan to cool
completely between welds. The amount is generally minimal and I have never had
one not seal. Please apply a thicker bead of Hondabond, start ALL hardware
before tightening, and follow the torque pattern and specs. The pan will
If your are supplying me with a pan and it is stained or has a gold tint inside, it must be cleaned prior to shipping. I DO NOT CLEAN PANS! Considering the time and effort it might take as well as the shipping to get it to me... buying a new pan might be a better option. Dirty pans will be returned at the senders expense or thrown away.
