Oil Baffle Kit for Holley LS Oil Pan
The new 302-10 Oil Pan Baffle Kit fits Holley's popular cast-aluminum oil pan (part number 302-1) that was designed to retrofit LS engines into trucks, muscle cars, and more. Vehicles that endure prolonged sessions of braking, turning, and accelerating need extra protection from oil starvation. This oil pan baffle kit is designed to maintain proper oil level at the oil pump pickup during vehicle accelerations, both lateral and linear. The baffle maintains the oil at the oil pump pickup, preventing loss of engine oil pressure during maximum cornering in high-performance touring or road racing, as well as under hard acceleration in drag racing vehicles. The baffle is fabricated from sheet aluminum joined by TIG welded joints. Directionally positioned one-way trap doors allow oil flow toward the oil pump pickup, but not away. This baffle is designed to be used in the Holley (part number 302-1) LS Swap oil pan with the standard pickup, and is a drop-in replacement for the standard tray baffle.
