I'm going to start posting honest opinions on why I choose the products that I do. There is a misinterpretation that I run products just because I am sponsored by that brand. In all those cases I reached out to these companies because I believed in their products. Canton Racing has always been my go to company for oil control. I have used their oil coolers, Accusump, oil pans, and oil filter adapters. I will go into details on those on a later date. Today we will take a look at a key item for the K24A2 that is going into the S2000.
I used Canton Racing's oil pan in my S2000 before. I used their F series oil pan when I first put a turbo on the car. So lets talk about the K series oil pan. One of the benefits of the Canton oil pans is the added oil capacity. This pan gives you an extra 1 Quart of oil!
Their pan also replaces your factory windage tray. This helps control the airflow in the crankcase and the drag that it can cause on the crank. Canton has done an amazing job at educating the masses on what windage is and how it effects performance here.
One of the most important thing about aspects of controlling your oil flow is to make sure that oil stays around the pick up. These trap doors do just that. When you are on the brakes the back of the pan tilts up (since your engine is leaning forward when you apply the brakes) and the front doors shut while the rear doors. Vice versa when you are accelerating. They are shaped in a Diamond to make sure that there is always a steady supply of oil to the pick up.
The Final reason i choose this pan is due to the fact that it has all the fittings I need on the oil pan already. I'm still going to be turbo with the K series so I will need a place for the oil drain to go. This is the best and a perfect option for that, rather then welding a fitting on the timing cover. It actually has two fitting on it which gives me another source for an oil temp sensor.
Okay I lied, that was not the final reason. This is, I have been a loyal customer of Canton Racing for a long time now. Their customer service is top notch and their products speak for them self when it comes to performance and quality. I will be running more of their components in the future, that is for sure!
