    The price tag is steep, but when it arrives you see why.

    I went back and looked at the pictures and now see what your talking about sorry about the confusion.
    On another note are the bolts O-ringed or how do you keep them from leaking vacuum?

    I doubt that the bolt inside the pan is what he is worried about. It's where the bolt sticks out of the pan that is going to rust, and that rust will run, and you'll have a big orange streak running down the side of the pan, at each bolt.

    My only complaint is that the hardware used to fasten the windage screen in should have been stainless rather than black oxide. After all, it is a marine pan.

    I hate rust, so I swapped them out!

    Dooley pans are great to give you 0 oil pressure after you lift at the end of the race course. lol mine did it everytime and I bet if you watch your gauge yours will too.

    I have a Stefs offshore drysump pan sitting here that's like a work of art.
