After all these years dealing with race engines never thought about oil pan preparation for a street/strip engine. I really like the natural silver anodized look of the new Moroso oil pan going on the new street machine, any benefit to spray it with clear coat to fight off corrosion or is the anodizing sufficient? Any real world feedback or suggestions is appreciated. Thx

If it is truly anodized, and your part of GA does not salt the roads, it should be just fine as-is.

If it is the steel pan, which I assume it is, then it is probably clear zinc plated. If you had it clear powder coated it would protect it pretty well. The zinc will do a decent job of protecting it but powder would help.

No road salt, however plenty of sea salt in the air at times. It is a steel anodized Moroso pan.

So, coastal GA? I have seen some coastal cars from Florida and Calif rusted out pretty badly.
That being said, I think Curtis is correct about the pan most likely being Zinc hot-dipped. Anodizing is by far most commonly done with Aluminum, Titanium is a distant 2nd, followed by Magnesium. Actually, I just took a quick glance at the Moroso website, it shows their clear/natural finish Steel oil pans are done in Zinc.
(Which should hold up just fine, even in coastal areas). Wink

Yes, coastal GA. You are absolutely correct regarding the zinc plating. Appears I do my best proof reading after submitting a question on a forum Shake head

Thank you for the replies, going to let it remain natural the way it shipped from Moroso
