Steve Dulcich is a great guy who’s magazine stories have enthralled us for years. In more recent times it has been his video work on shows like Hot Rod Garage, Engine Masters, and others that have kept us and untold thousands entertained on the internet. As so many do, Steve is venturing into the world of YouTube as well having started his own channel. One of the first videos (outside of a cooking tutorial) that he published is this one which is a how-to for modifying a Chysler oil pan at home for better oil control on acceleration and deceleration. While the pan layouts differ for differing engine types, the stuff taught here can be applied across the board.
With a little time, some card board, a couple pieces of sheet metal, and a welder, you’ll be in business and can make your stock oil pan perform better when you are on and off the gas. As Steve says multiple times, this is very basic baffling but it will be far more effective than the zero baffling that the factory offers.
Looking for a basic and fun fab project? Dulcich has your program right here.
Man, he’s got the hair, the wrenching talent, and suave demeanor…how did he get so lucky?!
