CTS-V pan is another low profile factory option, probably not as plentiful as the FWD ones though

just ordered the one on ebay. $99 shipped. looks like I get everything I need. and I can use my truck dipstick. now I see the sensor on the bottom of the pan in the ls4. is it a different style connector than the truck pan sensor on the side? the corvette and fbody pans are 200- 300. fawk that.

hell yeah and with only like a 1/2" difference. well worth the extra work on the inspection cover. Drove mine around today with no problems at all.

Yeah its totally different but I don't even use mine, if you use yours you can get the pigtail and splice it. Don't forget that the LS4 pan takes a PF48 OIl filter with the bypass built in.

correct no problems with starter, its a direct bolt in. other than there is one hole in the truck pan that's not drilled in the block of the truck block and the Ls4 has a hole drilled in the pan. I just silicone it. good to go.

put my new pan on. so much more clearance. now I get to rebuild my skid plate and get rid of the 4" drop down I had for the truck pan. only issues I have found is the 2 rear pan bolts are way to long. so I have to source 2 new shorter bolts. and the cap on the side of the oil filter for I think the remote cooler lines on some vehicles. they are different sizes. My oil pressure sensor is in that cap. so I have to drill and tap the new one instead of just bolting the one from my truck pan on. just a heads up to others. they are close. but not the same size.

excellent info, glad it worked out for you, was pretty cool for me to I got lucky and had the Bulls but I did have to rework my inspection play area and I did have to end up short in the dipstick but a half inch and I save 300 bucks
