    greyrex, that big oil pan sounds like a good idea, since vtec always gets that low oil level around 3-4K mileage.

    Actually I also know the DIY method, but looking for alternatives, so far, I know the Mugen pan is abt. RM900 or so, NEW, while for Spoon, no idea, but spoon one is better looking, the mugen one is like OEM, with baffle and the moogen tag.

    I was hoping to get a good look at moroso or obx pans in real life first, hard to rely on pictures for purchase.

    shiroitenshi - I didn't knew that the spoon steel oil pan is better compared to mugen.Actually,i was looking for the spoon 2pcs aluminum oil pan with air fins for B series but it's no longer in production as confirmed by the spoon representative.Anyway,i did noted some negative feedbacks on the obx which needs to do some mild mods in order to get it fixed up.To think about it...the price for obx vs moroso aluminum is wide apart.I really do wonder if there's anyone in our local machineering company could fab out the aluminum b series oil pan as it does help a lot on the heat disipation.

    akuma - just saja checking as if you were to heard anyone fab out an aluminum bonet locally as i find that alu bonet will helps a lot in heat disipation.Yeah...have to knock out those dents especially from our rex....damn low.Anyway,i will be fabricating a steel protection to be the first layer of protection for the alu pan.Well...hopefully i'm still around to toy around with my ride.Cheers!

    Not sure if heat dissipation is an issue for B-series, because so far, the thermostat and the fan switch mod with aluminium/dc2 radiator seems to work quite well in cooling high compression engines in the 12CR region.

    I do feel that the 4 Litre sump that originally came with the B-series is a little small though, which usually means a little topping up before it hits the 5000km regular oil change I follow.

    Anyway, I've only managed to shut off my vtec while cornering for a few times only so far, so I have considered baffling the oil pan, it' just that the mugen one is just a little too...... 'standard'.. lol

    Actually i did considered getting either a mugen or spoon baffled steel pan....but to think it over,i find that there's not much different compared those two vs oem except for the baffle plate in it.
    I noticed that our SO4 vtec in the market comes with aluminum pan and i'm wondering if this can be mod though into b series...hahaha...
    Anyway,i will start my pan project only after my battery relocation mod,hopefully i could get it done by next week.Cheers!
