You really dont want a big oil leak there.
I have been really lucky with this type of mod then.
Here's a couple more that I did.

My oldest (12 Years old now) welded oil pan is still working great. Over a 100k on it.

The stock DSM 1st and 2nd generation Talons have leakage issues with the stock type gasket oil return inlet. I'm mental when it comes to oil leaks. lol So this is why I started welding in 10 AN fittings about 12 years ago. The Honda oil pans that I did are the ones that did scare me because of how thin they are compared to the DSM pans.
