Default Oil Pan Question

I have a 2003 wrx (2.0 obviously). However, I have an oil pan off of a 2.5 liter to accomodate my headers. At any rate, I am wondering if I should put the same amount of oil in the 2.5 oil pan that I had previously put in the 2.0. Thanks!

What I would do is find out the amount of oil it takes on a 2.5L and the 2.0L and take the average of the 2.

What year & model is the 2.5 pan from?
Most likely it holds the same amount as your 2.0 did.

You can also go by the dipstick....

That's assuming that he changed the dipstick to the one that corresponds to the pan. If it is an STi pan you need an STi dipstick, pickup, and windage tray to correctly install it on the WRX 2.0.

The only thing I changed was the oil pan. The dipstick and pickup are the same. I guess I will just find out the amount of oil it takes to fill the 2.5 oil pan. And I thought all the 2.5 wrx oil pans from 06-07 were the same...

the 2.0L oil pan superceeds to the new style oil pan. I know because im about to change mine. There are no parts bulletiens stating any other parts are needed to upgrade, though im changing the pick up tube as well.

So you are using an 06-07 WRX pan on an 03 WRX to clear a different header?

I looked up the parts on www.subarugenuineparts.com for 2003 Impreza WRX.

pan 02-05 $66.93
pickup 96-05 $23.27
baffle 95-05 $16.45

Then for the 06 WRX

pan 04-07 $79.27
pickup 06-07 $19.08
baffle 06-07 $7.83

From this it looks like the baffle and pickup are different too. I couldn't find the dipstick on there, and the oil pan doesn't seem to be listed correctly for the 06. I think they are listing the STi pan.

I would do a little more research before you start the car with the new pan. I'd go to the dealer and check the parts for sure including the dipstick.
