The factory Cadillac CTS-V oil pan is a popular choice for engine swaps and retro-rod builds due to it's compact dimensions and low cost. Using a factory GM pan allows you to retain the structural rigidity of a cast aluminum pan.

This kit includes the new Improved Racing Cadillac CTS-V trap-door racing oil pan baffle, which is track-proven to prevent oil starvation at up to 1.4 sustained G's while road racing, drifting, drag racing or rock crawling. Save 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, dip stick, dip stick tube, pickup tube, and windage tray.
