We're not a company known for doing anything on the cheap. The advanced casting process we use allows for thinner, stronger, and lighter products.

A good comparison is look at our intercooler end-tank inlet/outlet. We can have a horn shape taper at the edge, a thinner wall provides a larger opening (more flow), and the thin wall means better exposure with less turbulence going into and out of the core.

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.
