depends on the generation of the D15B
uh no, not at all. he means to say that the pump pick up is different. :beer:He means to say that the oil pump casting may be different on the D15B depending on the generation. Correct me if I am wrong but the P06(z6) casting has different stud placements from the P2A(Y8). From what transzex says I guess D15B's use either one of these castings depending on generation. A newer D15B will have P2_ on the castings an older d15B will have P0_ on the castings. you want the P0_ castings.
If the dip stick goes into the block at the oil pump you have a newer oil pump casting and the z6 pan will not fit. otherwise I couldnt tell you.Is there any externally visual clue that will tell me if I have the right D15b to use a D16z6 pan?
