2zz oilpans Serious Lotus Vs Moroso

Does anyone have experience with both? Pros and cons? Have both sitting here, not sure which to keep.

Thanks for any opinions or suggestions.

Thanks!

Is the seriously lotus the Pro Alloy one?

If so, thatís the one Iíve been looking at. If you decide to keep the Moroso pan, Iíll pick up the Pro Alloy lol

Well the moroso guarantees it to be a pain in the ass to remove your rear lower a-arm when you need to replace suspension bushings. Hard to tell but there's a chance the bushing job is less of a PIA with the seriously lotus oil pan.

I'll get some pics up. Yes, the Seriously lotus is the pro alloy. Found a sheet in the box.

if i recall correctly, BOE's oil pan (https://www.boefab.com/products/toc-...p-oil-pan-v1-1) is also modified to give extra clearance for control arm removal... i dont have that pan personally but thats the one i've had my eyes on when its time to pick one up (& clearance for that arm removal is a heavily weighted buying factor for me)...

maybe phil can chime in on that?

Here are some side by sides of the 2.
The only reason I bought them both was because I bought the Moroso first. Then, when I was doing some reasearch I found that the Moroso wouldn't fit with the Seriously lotus chassis stiffener (Since the elige chassis is so weak I thought I needed this, hahaha). So, i went and bought the pro alloy one which was supposed to work with it.

There are A LOT of design differences, and where I understand the stiffener to go, they should both fit, and the moroso looks quite a bit different than older pics I've found online.

Let me know your thoughts.

I have the Boe oil pan, very happy with it, perfect fit, has all the fitting for what I need, and clearance for the A-arm fasteners to boot. It a no brainer as far as I am concerned.

Moroso may have addressed the suspension bolt clearance issue. Remove your stock pan and hold both of those up and see what you do and don't like about either.

I will jump on board that I like the BOE the best. Beside addressing clearance issues, it has a half circle chanel milled out of the sealing surface that a long o-ring fits into. Seals great and is easily removable and replaceable if needed. Far better than using gasket make/sealer.
