anyone?

Looking for one that has some cooling vents or one that keeps the crank from splashing though the oil to reduce friction and resistence.

We've been running Stef's pans for a long time in our race engines. They do work!

I know Stefs has Monaro specific aluminum racing oil pans available. I did a quick check with them and they are running around $695 and I can get them fabricated in about three weeks.

Now... caveat here... These are Monaro specific so there is no actual confirmation that these pans will fit our GTOs. Can't say they "shouldn't" fit but I'm not going to say in public they are a direct replacement in a GTO. You just never know!

Cooling vents?? Why not add a real oil cooler?

What makes you think that "the crank splashes through the oil"? It doesn't.

Yeah....Correct me if I'm wrong but LSx engines allready have windage trays,oil srapers and oil pan baffling.

Harrop has a sump system, but its $$$, I know Tony at Autoform looked into ordering one for my car at one point but it was a little too rich for my blood.
