Default WRX Oil Pan on RS??

Hey
I am planning to do a Custom turbo on my 99 RS. I just wanted to know if a WRX oil pan will work on an rs? Would make things easier then tapping mine if I could just swap it.

if you thinkthe oil return for the WRX is into the pan you'd be wrong. the oil return on those is in the back of the head, the WRX pan however is a higher capacity pan. and for the 99's you'll need a different water pump.

good luck

you can buy one from www.ludespeed.com for a 140.00 shipped, just drop tom an email its been welded for the oil line and you wont have to tap your pan. pic http://www.ludespeed.com/products/su...cs/oilpan1.jpg

Yup, you gotta tap the WRX oil pan for the RS-T oil return.


Kartboy welds on a WRX oil pan for a RS-T conversion.

As for the water pump, you may see issues with the dipstick tube clearing the housing, but a few slight bends on the dipstick tube will fix it. Most people have not had issues.

Sure, and at first you looked at me like I was nuts trying to bend those. Heh, a little manipulation of steel later and it's a perfect fit.

So would I be better off just having a oil return put on my stock pan or getting a WRX pan and having one added to it and having to bend the dip stick?

If you use a bulkhead fitting the procedure really isn't that difficult. You just drill a hole to the proper dimentions and tighten down the fitting with some sealant and thread locker. Its not the ideal setup, but if you don't have access to a welder of some sort, it will work.

I would go with the WRX oil pan it's also the same as all the DOHC 2.5 engines. Not only do they hold more oil but have more baffles. Therefore you will really limit your oil worries.
