I will also point out that for a long time I thought it was weeping through the casting, which has been a topic of discussion on NS in the past, however after installing my oil cooler it seems it was a small leak from the oil pressure sensor. You might want to plug that with an NPT bung as a part of the installation, or install an oil pressure gauge sensor instead.

Only issue is there's not a lot of clearance between the sump and the heavy duty whiteline swaybar I'm running, I think there's some marks in the paint on the swaybar where it's been rubbing against the fins on the sump

Do yourself a favour and water test it before installing. Fill it to the brim slowly ( so you dont get a misleading wet spot ) and leave it over night.

Cast greddy copy ones ok
Just get a speedflow fitting for the drain plug and speedflow bung and you will never strip the thread again

Where did you get it for $350? Every local Moroso pan I've seen was $400+, same as Tomei.

Rocket Industries, if you go via Real Street or OSTAR motorsports, you should see it for around $270 USD

They have trap doors like the cast ones, but are welded properly so they won't fall off.

Officially over it. Will live with it for a while. Me, my 180, my tub of spare oil, rag and degreaser ready to go after every session.

I did drill out and helicoll the sump plug thread, also hand filed the sump plug mating surface to make it smooth and flat.
A liberal dose of sealant to sump surface during install and I've never had a leak.
