$19, $9 more to ship.

Even TB can afford that.

Great price, $28! RockAuto's total was about $43. Ordered it.

Another benefit of using a splash pan is that you can tell by glancing at the top of the pan whether coolant (or other fluids, god help you) are leaking out of the front of the engine compartment.

Typically a quick look gives me early warning that I have a weeping water pump or radiator issue.

With the IPD pan I think I'm going to put some sound deadner on the inside. I can only imagine how loud it'll be

I don't hear mine, but I did screw a 6" x 6" piece of 1/2" plywood to the back of it between it and the crossmember, so I can jack the car up by the tail of it without bending it.

I've seen them on cars... You won't notice the difference.

Why would it be loud?
I've had a few of them, never noticed it making any noise.

I just figured the stainless might intensify engine noise

One hand locates the pan on the 3 studs, the other threads a front bolt or two in, less chance of cross-threading a relatively fine-thread fastener.

Fender washers recommendation seconded, and I used stainless lockwashers as well.

Soon I'll be wearing a belt and suspenders...

MSCDirect.com for the stainless 6x1 threaded rod and "heavy" nuts to make your own long studs for the rear locations. Works "a treat."
I kinda like this idea. Have you ever ripped a chunk out of your scalp or shoulder on one of these slipping under the crossmember with the pan off? Or do you have a lift to work under?

No lift here, and it's only been this way for 6 months or so, but you can choose how far down you want the studs to extend...I bought 3' of stainless threaded rod from MSC, cut thrice after measuring once, and the studs only have to manage a nut, a stainless fender washer, and the thickness of the pan...If you reinstalled the bolts just to not lose them after removing the pan, they'd probably hang down the same amount. You could make them even longer, cap them with rubber caps, then reinstall the rubber caps when the pan is removed for the true safety zealot.

Splash pans are more for aerodynamics than anything else.It does affect your mileage very slightly at highway speeds.That stainless one looks awesome.

I wish the IPD one had provisions for oil drainage from the filter.

Much more cost effective to cut it out when it's being plasma/water/laser cut vs moving it to another machine. Just rivet or screw a piece of colored plastic behind it.

For those not wanting to pay for the ipd ones, i have one on mine just bent up out of some thin gauge aluminium in pretty much the same shape, then a couple of old rubber floor mats cut up to protect at the sides, seems to work pretty well

The splash pan has one major disadvantage: it makes it more difficult to stand inside the engine bay of your car.

Pro imgur tip: add "l" to the end of the image ID (bvcTR9s in your case) and it'll automatically give you a shrunken version to fit forums

Actually, according to Volvo it's main purpose is cooling. Something about how it directs airflow around the engine bay.

It also gives you a place to zip tie in an engine diaper for all those leaks one can't find.
