Height for the engine is a big concern, so I want to make the oil pan just about even with the tranny.
Kind of a catch 22. The EJ20 pan is shallow, but terrible baffling. The EJ25 pan is taller, but definitely has better baffling for performance type driving.

What is the application? If I have some more background info on the car/setup/application I can give you a direction to head in.
