2004 Oil Pan Pickup Relocation

Originally posted in a C6 oil pan conversion discussion, but no responses. Perhaps beter luck here.

Original post:

Was just looking at the TBSSowners site. Mention is made there of PCM of NC offering an oil pickup tube relocation kit

PCM of NC Oil Pickup Tube Kit ? PCM of NC, Inc.

Since joining this site, I only recall the use of a C6 pan (and Need for use of an LC32 crossmember) being mentioned to deal with potential oil starvation of the stock front pickup SSR oil pan. For me, the extra quart of oil option has been my solution, but ....

Thoughts anyone on this oil pickup relocation solution?

Thanks.

Probably no response because of unfamiliarity with the item. The relocation kit is almost the same price as the C6 pan, is the same amount of work, and I'm not sure the back half of the pan is as deep as the front, so would wonder about how effective the relocated pickup would be when running slowly.

If I should have, I didn't!

But only 138,000 miles and 14yrs later on my 04 5.3 engine.

Had rear seal done recently 130,000 miles, also oil pan gasket.

Andy put in new oil pickup tube because he said it was old (like me) and wasn't working well.

I understand that if you are Racing your R, you should put in different oil pan and pickup.

Worked for me, however, it seems to be only for 5.3 engine!

I sent them a contact request about the 6.0 engine.

Will let you know what I find out.

The kit was $317.99

From your comments, I think maybe you did not note this guy has an 03/04 engine and this kit seems to be for that years/models.

All four model years use the same Trailblazer oil pan and the 5.3 and 6 L blocks share much of their architecture, including oil pump location.

No experience with it so cannot comment except with the fact that the stock SSR pan gets shallower towards the rear. Hence the LC32 crossmember is required when swapping to the Corvette pan.

I wonder how much further back the pickup is, and what the splash/splay trays do to help.

Opinion:
I like the way @Flassh is thinking and facts about the pans. To drop the pan, you’ve done all the same work to swap this part in. The only parts missing are the pan, pickup, dipstick and tube, which cost a few more $$, PLUS the LC32 crossmember and the LC32 alternator bracket. So this pickup would be less expensive.

Dean,

PCMs website for the relocation tube says its for the Trailblazer SS (which had the LS2 engine) and 5.3 engines...

I think that was a typo. LC32 supplies a mounting bracket for the two lower AC bolts.

The sellers say that it will fit the 05 and 06!

Something to consider for the non drag racers!!

Out of curiosity, I took a look at some entries on the TBSS forum site. As to cost comparisons, one of the posts showed the C6 kit price as follows.

https://gwatneyperformance.com/produ...#configuration


So, by the time you would add in the other cross member part, the sum difference in cost could be a deciding factor.
