When the vehicle is on the corner or the time of acceleration and deceleration, oil in the oil pan will lean or jump. To prevent these to happen, baffle is assembled in the pan of stock engine, thanks @Vishnudat.

OIL PAN BAFFLE PLATE. When the vehicle is on the corner or the time of acceleration and deceleration, oil in the oil pan will lean or jump. To prevent these to happen, baffle is assembled in the pan of stock engine.

An oil pan is typically provided with a baffle plate, which is used to eliminate entrapment of air in an oil strainer, such as a filtration oil filter, through oil inlets, as well as to prevent oil from sloshing around. Conventionally, the baffle plate is welded to the oil pan, or otherwise secured, together with the oil pan, to an engine block.
