It is for a turbo kit. The kit came with an already drilled pan.

If you jack the motor up be carful with the exhaust and wiring and other thing that can contact the body and get damaged.

Steinbc,
Were you able to replace the oil pan? If so, did you have to raise the engine?
I'm going to be replacing an oil pan gasket. Just wanted to know what I need to do to get the pan off.

Yep got it replaced. It was really no problem, pretty easy. There was a little bloodshed but nothing major. I used a block of wood and a jack, it worked but a hoist would have been a lot easier. I unbolted the two motor mounts and all the bolts that held the pan on. I then slid the pan back as far as it would slide then placed the block of wood where the front edge of the oil pan was. I jacked the front of the motor up probably about 1/2" above the mount studs and slid the pan towards the rear of the car and with a little finese it came right out. There were lots of squeeks and creaks as i was lifting the motor but no wires were harmed in the replace (that i noticed). As far as tools all you really need is 2 jack stands, a jack (preferably a hoist), sockets, and a long extension.

Piece of cake - good luck

Make sure your watching the motor mounts when you lower the engine. I had a hard time getting the driverside mount back through the stud. It shifted almost 3/4", just make sure you hit the hole and don't bend the stud!

Thanks for the tip. I ended up having to lower the subframe (k member) some, too. The Saleen s/c prevented me from raising the engine more than an inch, so I had to lower the subframe to get the pan out. I have an auto. trans. and maybe that has something to do with it, too.
