This is a fully baffled version of the factory 2005-2013 LS2 / LS3 Chevrolet Corvette (wet sump only) oil pan. This pan has the best ground clearance of any OEM LS oil pan and is a popular choice for engine swaps.
This kit includes Improved Racing's C6 Corvette Racing Oil Pan Baffle & Crank Scraper Kit. Save money by purchasing the pan and baffle together!
The complete swap kit includes everything you need to swap to this oil pan: the oil pan, Improved Racing baffle and scraper kit, dip stick, dip stick tube, and pickup tube.
Note: This kit works with the factory bottom end only. Will not fit stroker motors or aftermarket hardware, such as ARP main studs or ARP rod bolts.
