    Default Oil Pan

    Ordered a milidon marine oil pan but it is very heavy (16 pounds). I am thinking of changing it out for an aluminum street/strip one as I can't find an aluminum marine pan. Will an automotive street/strip pan work just as good as a marine pan in a boat?

    It will if it's not too deep. Your limit is about 7 1/2 to 7 5/8" deep.

    Is ordering a new pan worth the saving in weight? Is there really much difference? There are multiple threads on oil pans and different problems people have run into...
    Long story short tho, I've got a Stef's custom made pan and with a stock Melling oil pump (not HV) I have around 75 psi everywhere but a hot idle...

    I did need to drill a small hole on some internal bracing after recieving this pan just to allow the oil to drain back for oil changes. The design of the trapdoors was very unconventional and this created a small area that trapped oil. Very small oversight on Stef's part and easily remedied...awesome awesome pan tho
