For sustained high-G loads during high speed corners, it is critical to maintain proper oil flow to preserve the main and rod bearings. With the stock oil pan, the oil pools to one side of the oil pan away from the oil pick-up tube causing a dangerous drop in oil pressure. This Oil Pan Baffle is the best solution we have seen to prevent this.

There are some solutions in the market where a baffle is added to the oil pan which helps prevent oil starvation in corners. Unfortunately, these baffles do not address the negative G's from hard deceleration.
This custom Oil Baffle solution helps in both horizontal and longitudinal G's - and has been proven with racing MINIs in Grand Am and other racing circuits.
