LC Engineering 3rz Oil Pan

Is anyone running this pan or even had a look? It's really expensive but I think it would help the oil starvation problems when the truck is at angles.

http://www.toyotacatalog.net/M1WebGe...1-EC9A07DE1DD1

Oil Pan - 2RZ/3RZ Solid Axle Swap Oil Pan


This is the oil pan you must have if you are putting that solid front axle in your Tacoma or early model Toyota truck. The pan features anti rust coating, custom pickup tube, windage tray and trap doors to keep the oil by the pick up. This pan even comes with the drain plug and washer. For all 3RZ motors.

$350.00

Considering you can get the stock pan, pickup and dipstick for under $150, that pan had better offer some huge advantages over stock for that price!

Thats why I was hoping someone had one, they might not show a profile view because it is a modified stock pan. Does that pickup look similar to the T100 2wd pickup? or is it a custom piece.

Funny you should bring this up. I just bought a custom version of that pan for the buggy. Thing holds 7 quarts

Mine has 4 trap doors and 4 baffles as well as a full length windage tray.

It came with a custom pickup.

I'll post pics later. Unfortuantely I wasn't specific enough with the measurements and it was interefering with the drivelines at full stuff (it's low profile with wings off of both sides) I had Dan Bell fix it up and it's ready to install.

For me it was WELL worth the 350 I paid. Excellent workmanship.

Hopefully I won't be going through motors again this season.

So yours was built by LCE? I just got off the phone with them, they are looking around for more pics, if they find them I will post them up.

Yep, just got delivery on Friday.

Completley custom but they kept all the designs, so it's repeatable.

The trap doors are

It was only close to my driveshaft because at full compression, the pinion flange is above the pan

The pan is only ~4" deep, but it has wings that stick out on both sides ~3". The pan is with the buggy over at a buddies shop, when I get a chance I'll post pics.

I'm switching to the T100 application this week. Still haven't put fluids in. I'll let you know.

I didn't like how LC's looked, little hack if you ask me so I also just put the T-100 pan on. Did any of you plug the original dipstick hole on the front for the tacoma pan.

I just left the stock dipstick in it and don't worry about it. I got a 3rz so I didn't have to worry about shit like it running through 5.7qts (T-100 capacity) between oil changes. When its full it reads around a 1/4" above the low level on the stock dipstick.
Needs to be checked after its been sitting for a while though since it slides down the side of the pan a little and would pick up enough oil to look 1/2 qt low just off the sides of the pan if it had been sloshing around.

IU have a 3RZ in my rock buggy and I la yit over often, drive it around on its side, have flopped in quite a few times and I have never had the motor starve for oil.

I did drop off a big ass ledge on Britney Spears in Moab and bashed it up into the pickup that in-turn pushed up into the engine.

I pulled it off and hammered it back and it is good to go.

Can't see the starvation thing being an issue.

I'm still running the same T100 pan. My draglink and tie rod made some custom indents through self clearancing but other than that it's done everything you could expect a oil pan to do.
