TracTuff K Series OEM Steel Oil Pan Baffle
The steel oil pan baffles are each hand made using mild steel and depending on the application, are offered in a variety of configurations. The product pictured is the RBB pan from the K24A2. Street and road race baffles incorporate two vertical baffles with the largest possible combo of trap-doors to keep oil under control during left and right turns as well as a horizontal baffle that keeps oil from sloshing up the front and/or rear walls during braking and acceleration. Drag race pans do not have trap doors and do not due a good job of letting oil from adjacent sections, transfer to the center section quickly. The focus is to keep oil under control during straight-line acceleration; if the vehicle is a drag car but you drive it on the street... you need the street/ road race version.
The baffle is placed below the 4 qt. oil level to insure the resting oil is kept under control, in an effort to keep the oil pumps pickup submerged. The open horizontal design allows returning oil a quick way back to the sump... minimizing the chance of starving the pump by delaying the returning oil.
Oil pans can be sent in for baffle installation or you can purchase one of our new pans with the baffle(s) already installed. Email email@example.com if you have specific needs. Please allow for a minimum of two weeks for your order to be filled.
