piston oil jets/oil pan

So..... I guess I'm gonna start picking up parts . Is there any reason to spend the extra $ on an OEM oil pan? Or is an aftermarket oil pan fine? I was thinking about trying to have the inside of new one ceramic coated and line-x the outside of it to make sure it doesn't ever have any more problems. Thoughts?I just figured if I have to pull oil pan to fix oil jets that I should go ahead and replace the oil pan also. I think I'll go ahead and replace all the oil jets too instead of just fixing the one that broke. Also, I'm reading that there's problems getting the oil pan gasket to seal?? Any advice there? Thanks

I don't know about the ceramic coating on the inside but certainly i would do something with the outside, as far as oem and aftermarket probably just price is about the only difference. make sure you get a good gasket, spray some brake cleaner into a rag and wipe down the block, should be good to go.

I didn't exactly mean ceramic...was thinking maybe the stuff they use to coat inside rusted motorcycle gas tanks. But if you think I'm better off not doing it, that's the route I'll go. Thanks, Billy

not opposed to doing something like that just wouldn't really know why you would...theres 2 1/2 gallons give or take of oil in there all the time, corrosion shouldn't be an issue, the outside however is a whole different chapter, if i ever get around to getting one, i am considering powercoating but thats later on down the road

Oil pan coating

Refinished the outside of my oil pan last summer. Got under the truck with a sand blaster and blew off all the flakes of rust, the gave the pan two coats of a product (paint) called Rust Bullet. So far all looks good.
