Hamburger’s Performance Products now offers an affordable oil pan and pick-up for the popular LS engine. A deeper, rear sump allows for fitment is an assortment of body styles, and an o-ring seal ensures the pan is easy to install, and leak-free. -10 fittings make installing a remote oil filter setup (something sometimes needed with LS-swaps) a breeze, too.
Thanks to its lightweight and highly efficient design, GM’s LS-engine series has become the go-to replacement for the traditional Chevy small block or big block. However, swapping one of these updated powerplants into a classic vehicle presents a number of fitment issues with the factory oil pan. Now Hamburger’s Performance has made swapping a modern GM LS V8s into your car easier and less expensive with its new Econo-Series LS Swap Oil Pan.
Replacing a classic small block or big block with an LS-engine has traditionally required a new cross-member designed to accommodate the LS motor’s oil pan. While the original Small Block and Big Block Chevy engines had their oil sumps located at the rear of the engine, the LS has its located up front – potentially interfering with both the cross-member and steering components. Many LS engine pans also feature a deeper sump than their vintage counterpart, creating ground clearance issues, especially for lowered vehicles. Hamburger’s new LS Swap Oil Pan solves both of these issues by relocating the LS-engine’s sump to the rear of the engine, and designing the pan with a lower profile than the factory piece to ensure adequate ground clearance.
Built from two-piece stampings of extra thick .055-inch steel, each Hamburger’s Econo-Series LS Swap Oil Pan is jig welded and then block-fit tested to ensure the best possible fit and finish. Relocation of the factory oil filter is required, so Hamburger’s has a pair of integrated -10 AN fittings to make hooking up the remote engine oil filter a breeze, Hamburger’s # 1108 LS engine swap pan uses the factory o-ring seal to ensure an OE-quality seal. Like all Econo-Series Oil Pans, the LS Swap pan is built with a reinforced mounting flange to withstand the higher stresses created by high horsepower engines, and to provide additional block rigidity.
Hamburger’s Econo-Series LS Swap Oil Pans come with everything needed for a complete installation including pan, magnetic drain plug, specially designed oil pump pickup, and hardware. These pans fit all iron block versions of the LS engine family and are the perfect complement to a set of Trans Dapt Engine Swap Motor Mounts, oil filter relocation kit, or pair of Hedman Husler LS Swap Hedders.
