Audi or Fox oil pan on an AAZ?
« on: November 05, 2018, 09:57:00 am »
Guys,
 I'm wanting to do some oil pan fab mods on an AAZ oil pan, to allow for more clearance between the oil pan and the Samurai axle / diff housing.
 
 I can either mod the original aaz pan, or, it has been suggested that an Audi or Fox oil pan may be a better starting point, as it is deeper in the rear [ cyl 3 and 4 ] than an aaz. Any depth and volume removed from the front of the pan will need to be added to the rear, so it still holds 5 liters.

 Will a Fox or Audi pan bolt up to the aaz block? Which years will work?
 Anyone done this?

 Thanks.

I don't know the answer to your question, but I would check in with ACME adapters since they build swap kits and I know the offer their pan separate and I'm happy with mine in my sidekick!
