What oil pan is this? 07 Exige

Hi all! Decided to do some [first time for me] routine maintenance over the holiday weekend. After removing the undertray, I came to find this aftermarket oil pan. I'm now questioning the impact this has on oil capacity and trying to identify which model it is. Haven't been able to locate this exact one from the searches I've done thus far. Anyone recognize it?

Cheers and appreciate the help.

Looks just like a Morosso pan. I have one on one of my cars. https://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f25...oil-pan-49096/ It does increase the capacity, 1 quart if I remember correctly. ID yours and then search on Morosso's site. Mine already had a magnetic drain plug too. Verified when I changed my oil last month.

When you change the oil, make sure to insert a long tool into the oil pan drain to open the trap door inside the oil pan, this will let all the old oil to drain from the oil pan.

It will let a lot more oil out of your oil pan, but if you have the stock oil cooler(s) in front and the long lines you'll still have a lot of old oil in your system. That is a nice tip though, and I don't remember seeing that posted.

@oldmansan

Agree 100% with you about the remaining old oil in the system, but who really has the time to drain the front coolers? We are better off without the front oil coolers anyway.

One of the reasons I bypassed the stock cooler setup (I have an '05 with the 'Persian Gulf' dual front coolers package) was to get cleaner oil changes. I already removed about a pound of oil from the car by blowing out the coolers and lines. Once I get them removed the car will be simpler and lighter still.

...and less places to oil to potentially leak from!

First thing I did was to have them removed.
