Does the Exige have some sort of factory windage tray that mounts to the bottom of the block that needs to be removed? I'm laying under the car and my new TOC pan seems to hit this "fluted" type of panel that bolts on to the bottom of the block. I emailed Phil but I'm sure their not at the shop answering emails. There are pictures below, it seems to hit where my finger is in the second pic. I'd like to wrap this up tonight but if I have to, I'll wait until tomorrow.

Thanks

You're not alone - the Moroso pans needed this tray removed or trimmed:

I thought the newer solutions (TOC and gPan 2/3) didn't, but I might be wrong.

Thanks. The forum search and even google didn't find me much.

Thanks for the link.

I didn't want to tear into this piece with a grinder before I knew for sure that I needed to.

Just have to give major KUDOS to Phil for giving support WAY outside of business hours. There is no reason that he had to contact me tonight (at 10pm EST) but went out of his way to make sure that I was a happy customer. I don't know how to express what a fantastic operation he runs and how the customer is always put first.

Now for reference it seems that the mounting points for the factory windage tray are slotted/oversized and you can loosen it up and slide it far enough for the new pan to mount up nice and solid. I'm not that patient and re shaped the windage tray with a grinder and sanded my new edge back to smooth. I noticed the adjustment in the tray when I mounted it back up. Phil confirmed that the adjustment is usually enough to get the clearance that is needed.

Phil, thanks again. You guys rock.

Good info about the tray, I did not have that problem but had to dremel down the welds a bit to get some of the bolts to fit. However, I think it is a great product, and has not even dripped a bit once since I installed it. It is what Lotus should have shipped as OE.

Good to know! Gotta love BOE

Sounds like another win for the TOC over the old pans like the Moroso. I'm thinking of switching over to one but the thought of scraping RTV off the pan again (even if it would be the last time) makes me sad.

Do these pans work correctly if fitted to a North South engine installation as opposed to the east west as seen in the Lotus? Or does that end up with the gates and baffles aligned incorrectly for high cornering G's?
