Default Upgraded Oil Pan Baffles?

did a serach and can't find much info on this.

came across this part, but is this necessary?

Maruha oil pan /baffle

i know for a fact that it helps a lot in SR20 motors because their oil pan is fairly flat, compared to miatas.

I would be a bit more worried about crank flex personally, with that said i have an MBSP in my bottom end.

People have problems with the factory piece? I figured the stock baffle, windage tray and my crank scraper would be enough in the oiling department.

Stock oil pan is pretty good. Most don't need to modify it. I doubt you'll need to mess with it. If anything run an extra 1/2 quart in the car when tracking it.

Unnecesary for a miata. SR20 motors are a completely different thing.
