The GM LS family small blocks are prone to oil starvation at high Gs, especially at higher RPMs where oil aeration and windage is more prevalent. Proper oil pan baffling is critical for improving oil control and reducing oil starvation in these engines.

Improved Racing's baffles provide very effective, track-proven protection against oil starvation for road racing, drifting, autocross, drag racing and even off-roading and rock crawling. The baffle uses directional trap doors to keep oil around the pump pickup and provides vastly improved drainback and oil control over the stock baffle. This baffle is sufficient to prevent oil pressure drops at up to 1.4 sustained lateral G's in most vehicles.

The optional Oil pan gasket kit includes a new performance single-piece oil pan gasket (part number HGA-1001) and a OEM oil pickup tube O-ring. It is recommended that these components be replaced when installing a used oil pan.

Old part number EGM-1000.

Features and Benefits

  • Track-proven to prevent oil starvation at up to 1.4 sustained lateral G's
  • Directional trap door baffling completely encloses the oil pump pickup for maximum protection against oil starvation at high Gs
  • 100% bolt in, no welding necessary. This is a direct bolt-in replacement for the stock steel baffle in the stock oil pan
  • Baffle plate with drain-back guides and drain-back slots help accelerate return of oil to the bottom of the sump while also preventing oil slosh and reducing oil consumption
  • Reduces the risk of oil starvation when oil levels are low
  • Works with the factory cast aluminum oil pan, which is considered a structural member of the engine block and is less prone to failure or leaking than aftermarket sheet metal pans
  • Light-weight aluminum construction sheds 1.3lbs over the factory baffle
  • Solid body aircraft rivets employed for securing trap doors
  • Lifetime Warranty
  • Made in the USA

Thanks Michael,

You guys have great customer service. The baffle arrived on-time and I found it to be well designed, made and it fit perfect. I spun my #6 rod bearing last time at Thunderhill even with a 3-qt accusump, so I was concerned about running the new motor at Laguna last Monday. No need to worry, I never saw the oil pressure drop below 50 and the motor ran strong all day. I am running 12" wide slicks on a race-prepped RX7, so cornering forces are up there. Much cheaper than a dry sump.

I highly recommend this product. It is a clear improvement over the factory stamped steel baffle.
