Default WRX Oil pan on a 99rs

Can any one confirm if a wrx oil pan will fit on a 99rs? Or what I would have to do to make it fit.

Thanks

I put a WRX oil pan on my 2001 - bolted right up. I'd imagine it would be the same for a 99.

the hardest part was getting the screws out/in on the back portion with that stupid crossmember in the way.

edit: i rea about changin teh dipstick as well, so i bought a WRX dipstick and didnt need it. the dipstick attaches to the head so on your DOHC you MIGHT.

The DOHC 2.5's came standard with the WRX oil pan. I've had my WRX oil pan on four differant EJ series engines with no problems and no needing to change dip sticks.

We fit one on my MY00 without an issue.

We put one on Revision's MY99 and had to slightly bend the oil dipstick tube to fit in. No idea why, should have been exactly the same as the MY00.

Just to clarify to you, I hope your not trying to use the WRX oil pan as a means of oil drain back...

Turbo oil drain-back on a WRX normally goes to the head, its us AFI guys who tap the oil pan for direct drain back.

Im not sure if that is why you asked the question, but it was my question at one point, and I just wanted to clarify that if you were confused.

Yeah Im taping the wrx oil pan, So I dont have to worry about taking mine off taping it and putting it back on, in the middle of the turbo install.

thats what i did. There are many methods for doing this. One you may want to consider is Brazing:

1. Buy a Brass Barbed fitting (5/8" if you want to match the turbo outlet)

2. Drill a hole for the fitting (you choose placement, make sure you think it thru, or you'll be sorry)

3. DO NOT USE A NUT on the inside. alot of people used Buldge style fittings, I think it runs risk of leaking and falling into oil pan. This is where brazing comes into play.

4. Remove paint from around the hole.

5. Use propane torch and brazing rod to braze (soldior/weld) the fitting to the pan.

6. Sand it down, fill with water to check for leaks.

7. Paint (use bondo to fill in pinholes if necessary)

mine looks like it is a stock piece now that its painted. It has worked great.

The oil pan bolt pattern is exactly the same among all of the EJ-series motors. Don't let anyone tell you any different.

a lesson ive learned in life is that the dealer is generally stupid in all aspects.

they tell you things like this because either they dont know, or they dont want to be responsible for selling/recommending the wrong part.

The refused to help me in any way w/ my RS front end conversion, telling me that the bumper and hood wouldnt fit.

the WRX pan has an additional baffle that the RS pan does not - less sloshing in the pan and less likely to suffer oil starvation at the track.

I have a 99rs with a wrx pan no problems. I had ludespeed pan and had two pin size holes thats why I replaced it. the wrx pan I had reinforced just to make it stronger. That fixed one of my oil leaks

leak free know

do you still need to tap the WRX pan like you would have a RS pan then? If some one could please add pictures to this i think that would help me ALOT! i'm very confused as far as all the oil lines go. Thank you.

Mine is done identically to that as well, except I had it tig welded instead of brazed.

my web host is down ATM, when it is back up i will post a pic.

The wrx gets teh oil feed and drain for the turbo from the block - so yes you still have to tap a WRX oil pan, but it is more convenient to tap a new pan ahead of time than to pull your old pan, get it good and clean (oil + the heat of welding/brazing = not good), tap it, and then reinstall it.

I went to my local parker store and got some -1AN steel braided line and an earl's 45 degree -10AN fitting for the pan side, and there was a nipple on my turbo for the drain so i just used a hose clamp and some silicon sealant for good measure.
