  • Dry Sump Construction

    In pictures of the LT2, I can't determine if the tank is plastic or metal. In the video it appears that the tank is made out of a metal but I've also seen it look like its a black plastic material. I can't imagine the reservoir being anything other than metal due to heat but wondered if anyone knew for sure. Is it metal covered in plastic? I was chatting with fellow member Fasttoys yesterday and we both were confused. Any details?

    I believe I read somewhere or saw in a Chevy video that it was high temp plastic.

      Well you should, it's plastic. Ford has a plastic oil pan on the Mustang. Oil only gets to a little over 200 degrees, it's no big deal.

          There are plastics that can withstand a 500 degree oven.

            If oil reaches 500 deg, we got a problem...

                Yep, a blown up engine way before the oil gets anywhere near 500. More like 280-300 usually indicates a failing main or rod bearing.

                  Wasn't suggesting the oil could get that hot, just that using a plastic oil tank isn't an issue.
