For the pan is means no tapered walls, which means no compromise to oil capacity, and an small improvement in strength, without a significant weight tax.

From a performance perspective, there's no change. Both versions can handle anything you can throw at them. The cast pan is now our mainstream product, but we are still making the weld-porn fabricated on a made-to-order basis.
I'm not insinuating that you are a company that does things on the cheap. I could only make the deduction that since you no longer have a skilled professional slaving over welding up these oil pans from individual pieces of aluminium, and you can now knock these things out like proverbial sausages, savings might be passed on to the consumer. Would you say that casting the oil pans is a more labour intensive process than your previous construction technique?
