Got an idea... What do you think?

Got to thinking today, about how everyone says these engines are kind of maxed out on lpo supply with the hpop, 2 turbos and planning to run aux. feed line to the hpop resivoir, all depending on the same pump. I know when I had my b.o. and twins my oil pressure dropped signifigantly at idle and low rpm. (even running the melling replacement lpop) So I was kind of thinking about making a setup with a electric pump to supply both chargers and possibly run the aux. feed line to the hpop resivoir off from it as well. I was planning on running a seperate oil filter on the dicharge side of the pump as well. This would allow the engine to have full capacity of the lpop to ensure enough volume to everything else.

So what do you think?

If you're gonna go through that trouble, you may as well just switch to a dry sump setup and don't look back. :)

Re: Got an idea... What do you think?

Bill Ive thought a lot about a dry sump and come up with a couple good ideas on what to do, but dont realy know what to use as far as a pump. Any suggestions about a pump? I know a gear pump is obvious but what about aeration and such.

Re: Got an idea... What do you think?

So any info about a pump that will keep aeration to a minimum and be the correct volume?

Re: Got an idea... What do you think?

Some good places to start....

Armstrong Race Engine Systems

Barnes Systems

In reality, the dry sump systems will actually reduce aeration in comparison to a standard wet sump system because you are pulling oil from a remote oil tank and not from the oil pan. This gives the oil a chance to settle and eliminate any bubbles trapped in suspension and supplies fresh, dense oil to the bottom of the tank.

There's often contention over whether Gerotor style pumps introduce aeration in the supply oil and from what I've seen, it doesn't happen at the pressures the systems are designed to be used at (< 150 PSI). After all, if there was aeration problems, NASCAR, NHRA, SCCA, IMSA, and a zillion or racing organizations wouldn't be using them. Engines are cheap and they demand the best quality oil systems available.

Hope this helps.
