Scavenging and aeration in the oil pan have been identified as a problem in the 996, 997 and Boxster models that experience high G-forces on the racetrack. Very similar to the X51 oil pan, but deeper so more oil can be added. Basically, this one pan has all of the benefits of three different pans on the market, but combined into one. Our opinion, this is the best version available on the market.
FVD has the solution:
The "FVD Motorsport" oil pan has the baffling concept of the X51 oil pan. It also increases the oil capacity because the pan is deeper. This pan adds close to 3/4 of quart (0.6 Liters) of oil over the original X51 pan. This allows for increased oil cooling and engine performance by preventing oil starvation and oil foaming.
The "FVD Motorsport" oil pan is also designed with external cooling fins which helps to lower the oil temperature.
Models: Boxster (1997-2008), Cayman (2005-2008), and Carrera 3.4 or 3.6 liter models (1999-2008). Not compatible with Carrera S, Turbo, or GT3 models.
