  • FS: Replica DTM oil pan

    I am producing good quality replica DTM oil pans for the E30 M3. These are CC601 aluminium castings heat treated to T6 condition and then fully machined. They include a full baffle kit, two vertical baffles and the horizontal baffle. The baffles are laser cut from 5083 aluminium, then folded on an NC folding machine for good accuracy and then anodised, and they are then fitted with genuine "Cosworth" rubber flap valves. The tolerances on these baffles are much tighter than the original BMW Motorsport parts, to ensure even better oil control in corners. The sump pan come complete with a new set of yellow zinc bolts and a Wurth sump plug.

    The first couple of batches I have made of these pans have sold very quickly, but I am having more cast up at the moment. Delivery on the next available pans will be about 6-8 weeks. Cost of the pan is 930 plus shipping, which is about 70 to the US. If you are interested in one of these please PM me with your full name and email address. I will contact you when they are ready to ship and payment can be made in full then (I will not ask for any deposits etc up front)

    BTW, these will not fit cars with airconditioning!

    cheers Conrad

      The pans are better than the BMS MS pans?

      The pics are gone.

        Thanks Jake! Those engine mounts are happening too, I will keep you posted.

        Mike - I have raced a (proper) DTM car for a couple of years now, and just sold it and bought another. I have two original MS pans here. The baffle kits on these worked okayish, but on high G corners with HOT engine oil (over 100C) the oil does find its way past these baffles, into the end of the sump pan, causing the oil pressure to drop. I have logged this on several occasions, and it took quite a while to work out what was going on. After removing the sump pan, and filling it up with water and rocking it side to side, it was easy to see what was happening - the oil was getting past large gaps in the ends of the baffles. These sump pans I have made eliminate about 90% of those gaps.

        I won't get into a "this part is better than that part" debate. If you have an original DTM car it is hard to go past having original MS parts fitted, and I like the parts on my car to be MS numbered parts, and not replicas. But I can tell you that one is a whole lot cheaper than the other, AND much more easily available.The quality just happens to be very good too.(and it is 100% made in NZ, NOT China!) Sat beside a MS pan they do look impressive! Below is a pic of one of my pans in the foreground, and two MS pans in the background for comparison.

        The intention of making these parts was to give people another option. So you decide.
        cheers Conrad



        P.S. links to pics still seem to be there for me- anyone else can't see them?

              I have seen Conrod's links on "another" site, and his work is very impressive! If I didn't have a large-cap pan already, this would be the one that I would buy....

                I am very interested in this pan but don't have the funds at the moment. Is this something that you will continue to produce Conrod or is this a limited time opportunity? Fantastic job BTW....these appear to be very nice and very correct.

                  Yes. If I didn't already have a pan I'd be in on this.

                  Here are the pics, let me know if they don't show up.















                  Awesome work Conrad.

                      Does this work? I uploaded them to my gallery. Hope you don't mind Conrad. If you choose to upload them to your gallery here I can go back and update the links no problem. Hope this helps.

                        thanks Jake - appreciate that! They were working for me okay, but only when I was logged in. But I had to click on the link to open them. Posting on interweb not my strong point!

                        Thanks for the compliment :thank you - it took 7 months, a lot of prototypes, and a lot of money to get these "correct". Dimensionally they are identical to the MS pan, and all parts interchange between the two. This is not a "limited-offer-get-in-quick-while-they-are-available" deal, I will continue to produce these for as long as there is a demand. I do not want to keep producing these if nobody wants them, so by taking names now it gives an indication of how many people still want them, and speeds up the processing once they are completed.

                          Off topic, Conrod, I read on another site that you had looked into having DTM wheel replicas made, but that it was going to be very expensive.

                          Having you thought about contacting Paintpro on this forum regarding the possibility of doing something similar through him? I bought a set of BBS RC replicas through his business, and they were very nicely made, lightweight (7.5 kg for a 8.5"), and have the proper certification.

                          An awesome-looking DTM replica with those specifications would surely be a hit?!

                            Thanks Anders,
                            I have just had a look at his wheels and they do look very good!
                            I have just started on replica Gp.A engine mounts for the M3, so I will focus on that project for now. I don't want to start two projects at once, one is more than enough! I might revisit the wheels and contact this person after this project is completed.

                            cheers Conrad

                              Very nice...

                              Again... is the price 930 euro's? or 930 NZ dollhairs?
                              Kind Regards
