Re: Wanted: oil pan upgrade for I5???


thought the same thing, many moons ago...same motor..hmmm...coincidence?? :)
I had given thought to the baffle idea, never finalized the design, but
shouldn't be all that
hard...several pieces of steel sheet, braked into angle, with approprate
holes, would think
about 3/4" around the pickup, and maybe one or two laterally, to help with
oil control on hard
braking...then again, a crank scraper, windage tray, dry sump....gee, been
around race cars
too long I think, go too many spare parts wanting to use on
something.....seriously, has anyone given thought to the idea of dry sumping
a t motor, would love to give it a whirl..only foreseeable prob is where the
hell would I put a 8 or 10 qt resivoir????

Isn't it time we found something better than stock for this part?  Or is
it my car...? I'm always getting low oil pressure buzzes on hard stops,
some corners, even when I'm not low on oil.  Does this mean the oil is
sloching away from the pickup?  Is there something I should fix?   (n/a
engine in old coupe)
