KazeSpec Engineering has developed an aluminum oil pan baffle for the 1.6 and 1.8 NA
and NB Mazda Miatas. The baffle features trapdoors that keep oil around the oil pickup tube at
all times. During high g-force corners, this is a must to keep oil starvation from happening. A
new top baffle plate is included, which the baffle is welded to for easy installation. The oil pan
baffle is made completely out of aluminum, and the trapdoors are attached using MIL-SPEC
rivets to ensure they don’t loosen over time. We use aluminum trapdoors instead of rubber
because rubber eventually breaks down when submersed in oil.
