    You can find OEM pans online with fast shipping. I would not wait for GMpartsdirect.

    What is wrong with your oil pan? I'm sure if you take it to a machine shop they could fix it up for you. When i had my engine apart some how the corner of my oil pan where the bolt hole is cracked off. The engine shop just welded it back on. Can't even tell where the crack was.

    Looks like it could be fixed. Would definitely be the cheapest route.

    My brother is taking it into his work to see if one of the mechanics can weld it.

    I would not mess around with something as important as your oil pan. This is not a water pump your dealing with. A failure of the pan while driving could cost you an engine. Penny wise and pound foolish is not the way to go. Suck it up and do it the right way, buy a new pan.

    I don't understand what could fail if it was welded correctly.

    I'm not worried about buying a new one, but if it can be fixed why waste the money.

    Engine vibration would worry me alot. I do not know what caused the original problem but if you have a bad casting the pan could crack in other places. We are not talking about alot of money here. Be safe.

    All LS1 Firebird Formulas/Trans Am/Camaro's are the same. LS1 Corvette/GTO's are not the same style of oil pan.

    I've ordered parts several times from gmpartsdirect. For OEM parts they have some of the best prices. I've had only one issue and it really wasn't their fault. I tried getting a new bell housing for M6. GM quit making them just prior to me making my order. They let me know and refunded my money.

    Thanks. local sale was for a front sump. He didn't know.

    The local performance shop turn me onto this gem. Part #:19212593. Summit carries them for $150. Guy swears by it, so hopefully it works.

    As long as dimensions are maintained, I would not hesitate to repair the stock pan.

    With the way it cracked, we were worried it wouldn't be flush, and seal correctly. The new pan was only $186 after Next Day Air.

    Oil pan came it. It's lighter, stronger. lined up perfect. doesn't have a provision for the oil level sensor. It came with a new pickup tube, windage tray, hardware, gasket, and dipstick. Had the felpro gasket, so the other came off. i had to use the new pickup tube, and windage tray, but it bolted up great. had an injury, so i haven't gotten to run it yet, just waiting on the oil, and putting the cross member back in.
