That is a fantastic find, Jim!

I am sure it will cost a pretty penny, but may push a few people over the edge. Solves two issues, oil control & starter.

In the first pic with the new oil pan next to an OEM pan, it doesn't not look to be any taller/deeper. The starter will hang down a bit lower, though.

I really like the Batwing oil pan, though.

Could be improved on but it's a good start. Will it work with the LS4?
