So the mantis sport 1.2l pan would seem to be the best extended pan out to get for the 3.8?

Hi. I can ser that you have a 997 S (3.8L). I want to installera this Oil pan but on the FVD website they say that this product doesn't fit the S model. Have you been in contact with them about this before your purchase?
I would really appreciate a link to the exact product if you have it.

Thank you in advance!

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?
Would love to hear an answer to Hal's last paragraph question....

I need to replace the pan on my 06 C2S, and since I track the car, I'm interested in one of these pans. I prefer the FVD design because it's one piece. Why do all the websites still say its 3.6 only?

Based on Hella-Buggin making me think about tgat drain valve being plucked off by a tire gator or other road debris, I changed it to the LN Magnetic plug.

By the way, when I removed it there were some light scuffs on it from contact with something, so thanks Hella.

I also added LN's stainless steel skid plate, which is a real quality piece, unlike the toy factory aluminum offering (that also doesn't work with a deep sump).

Here's my current setup.

So no issues with the "3.6 only" FVD pans on 3.8s?

No idea. I have the larger MantisSport version, not the FVD one. I don't know if the FVD one has a windage tray, but that's a worthwhile addition for a deep sump. The MantisSport one is also 1 piece, plus the windage tray, whereas one of the others is like a spacer. That one created an additional potential seam to leak, which I didn't like, but don't recall if it was the FVD one or a different one. .
