Oil Pan


Installed a heli coil and awaiting a gasket after forgetting lefty loosy/righty tighty
.  Would you all go this route or install a new pan.  It will take about a week for the gasket to come in and in the mean time will test the heli coil.

There is a small slot that is blocked by the heli coil.  Is this for draining purposes or something else?  I have 24k on the busa I change the oil every 2k so I am not worried about the few onces of oil that would not drain.

Any after market pans out there?
