There is no aluminum pan for the 2.8. The next generation engines had an aluminum pan but the bolt pattern is different. It's my understanding that there isn't material in the right places for drilling out to fit the aluminum pan. It would require main bearing cap modifications as well since it is for crossbolted mains. This would require line boring the engine..
