      ok so my lowered vr6 is in need of a new oilpan BADLY. where i live the roads arnt nice and flat and the pan is pretty ugly looking with a slight drip to it after the hell it has been thru... any master oilpan engineers in oregon/south washington area that makes and sells them?
      preferably something of this thickness if possible.

      Pm fastmaxxcooper.

      He makes shortened pans, although you do need a pump from a mkv r32 it is probably one of the best investments ive made with my car so far.

      Reinforced pans. Terrible idea.

      Leave it too "Euro Enginuity" to market a terrible example of a terrible idea. That front 90* bend is asking to crack your rear oilpan rail on the block.
