FYI, we are working on a solution for the oil pickups in regard to silicone build up in the internal screen

It then bypasses the oil filter, because the bypass opens at cold start. So, debris that normally would have been trapped by the oil filter, is now freely circulating through the engine, causing additional wear while the oil filter bypass is open. Again, I have zero factual evidence of this, it's just theory. The results were just so compelling and repeatable I feel others would want to hear about it.
Awesome data point, thanks for sharing!

Would like to see more capacity. Does the 2021 and older baffle plate and pickup work on our new 2022 engine? I want those parts but don't know about fitment.

More capacity is definitely on our short list.

I don't know on the baffle plate, but the pickup is VERY different.

Has anyone got any conclusive data showing those horizontal baffle plates doing anything? From EJ stuff the almost more often do more harm than good, with some OEM baffles performing better.

I'm telling you our super fancy $35 magnetic drain plug did more harm than good; tested twice, on three different cars. I have no data other than that product but based on our testing and similar results others have had, there's a pretty good probability it may hold true for all.

For anyone curious, the lower oil pan holds 2.6 quarts.

The remaining 2.7 quarts is in the upper pan.

Just not plastic like VAG uses on their 2.0L engines!

Loved my GTI, but I was always worried about the plastic oil pan. So many ways it can go wrong for somebody.

If I can get a little more confidence that I'm not going to smoke my motor in a long high speed corner, then I'll buy it. Don't need anything fancy, just a little better baffling and an improved pickup and you've got yourself a customer.

It's the way of the future! Many manufacturers have made this switch, and I was apprehensive at first too, but if the design is good you have nothing to worry about.

While we do make/use plastic parts, and printed plastic parts for testing, I don't see a pan being one of them because we do so much with the rally guys, and they favor no-fail durability.

Although, I'd assume the BRZ guys are more about weight savings and performance capabilities. Plus, there is a belly pan to offer some protection. In the years I've gone to rally events, I've only seen one BRZ so maybe this version does not need to prioritize indestructability?

Afraid so. Happens to the best of us.

Absolutely must have improved functionality!

Impacts always bothered me, but there were tales of the area around the drain plug cracking when someone went full-gorilla and wrenched the plug rather then just making it snug. That's what really made me cringe since I can't always do my own oil changes.

Instead of just stripping some threads, it became a pan replacement. Seemed to be more of a problem with Audi A3/S3 owners than with GTI's...not sure why.

And while we're on the topic of plastics, the issues with the plastic impellers on the water pumps is a fun one too. Later re-designed to be metal. But that's a story for a different day.

You would hate the 911 pans/plugs then. VERY wide, behind the rear wheels (vulnerable to curbs and speed bumps), glowing read headers just 1" away, and the drain plug (that's also plastic) is a 1/4 turn plug.

I don't mind the pan, but that 1/4 turn drain plug that you use a straight screwdriver to tighten makes me cringe at every oil change.

What kind of price range would you guys consider as reasonable?

A simple product designed to be cost effective, is going to be nowhere near the same cost as one designed with performance as the top priority and feature rich.

Where we end up on this scale could mean a final product in the $400-to-$600 range. Looking for feedback on what the majority here considers to be a priority.
