I have the 2L MantisSport pan on my C2S and it's a very nice piece. Stock baffles are modified during the install and it also has a windage tray. Oil temps are now a bit lower and never had an oil pressure issue. It's a quality unit and I bought mine during a Group Buy that I think was on Planet-9 so saved a few bucks. With my lowered C2S though, it is low enough where it will not clear the cement parking stops when backing the car into a spot so you have to be careful, but my car is so low at both ends I'm always careful.

Need some advice. Trying to install a FVD-207-988-01 on a 2008 CS but the pan won't mate. As shown in the photo the original pan is shaved whereas the FVD is not. I'm not sure what the function of that metal piece is with the cable going through it but if I remove it I think it will mate and then reattached. Suggestions welcomed. Thanks.

Joe,
It is a safety restraint in case of a shunt .

I wonder if it was an accessory or add on? I don't recall my 06 S having that cable, and surely nothing interfered with the install. I also didn't notice it in any of the other photos in the thread.

Thanks for the quick response. I took off safety restraint cable bracket in order to mate the oil pan to the engine and then reinstalled it. Perfect fit.

I wish they would make those for the 3.8l Engine. I would love to make this mod to my Car.

Looks like a couple of these guys (JoeCS, USMC_DS1) have installed this on an S from the posts below, which would be the 3.8L engine. For the part # shown by JoeCS, FVD's description says this is for the 3.6L engines only and specifically says "excludes 997 3.8L" so I'm confused. This is one of the reasons I went with the MantisSport pan, plus it offered twice the capacity of the FVD pan and 1.2L vs 0.6L, and had a windage tray.

For those of you installing this FVD deep sump on 3.8L S cars, why did you select this one when it shows it's not a proper fitment for that engine?\

Yes, this is for the 3.8L S engine and that's what I have it installed on. Snapped a couple more pics while I was doing my conversion to DT40 this weekend.

Yea I have that concern too. I'm going to make something out of strong steel that attaches to the under car tie downs to protect it a bit

I am a long time, 44 years, Porsche owner. All of them have been air-cooled until I bought a 996 for the track and now my 997.1. When I got the 996, I did a lot of research on the oiling issue and did it again when I thought about a Cayman for the track.

Here is what I found on the 996 M96 motor. Oil starvation occurred: 1.) On long, left hand sweepers, and 2.) When the car was running pure race slicks. NT-01’s and R-888’s of the world could not generate enough G force to cause the problem. Said another way, oil starvation would only occur when a car was on a long left hand sweeper PLUS the car was on slicks to generate enough laterial force to cause oil starvation. 2006-2008 Caymans were susceptible to the same thing with ACCUSUMP being the best safeguard.

That said, I did grab an X-51 oil pan with baffles and install it for peace of mind, even though I used extreme performance street tires (Bridgestone RE-11’s) because I had to dive to and from the track.

So here is my question: Did the 997 M96 and/or M97 motors change the oil pickup so that oil starvation can happen under less dire circumstances than race slicks? Any feedback from the track rats over on the Racing and DE forum on this?

thanks for your reply

I just love your Car


I will look into the one you have.
I do not want to purchase the one from FVD and than it will not work.

What is that valve anyway? Looks like a future regret. Doesn't the mantis just come with a standard drain plug?

It's a Fumoto drain valve. Makes oil changes, easy, neat, and fast. Yes, the Mantis sump uses a regular drain plug. This screws in in-place of it and has a little lever that opens the ball valve. It wasn't as low prior to the deep sump install.
