You called us out first , breached whatever confidentiality agreements we had as a customer and as as for rants , yours are still up on other forums.
I am protecting my brand and my name from someone I have not sold an item to. Full stop.
Go back and edit your posts , and ill do the same. Until then these forums have 0 place for those sort of posts so you are free to keep them to the other forums.

Thank you. Means alot coming from you.
We don't always get it right but I am at a point in my business where the relationships we have allow us to manufacture products , thoroughly test them and then modify them to suite customer needs and should issues arise , I am there to resolve them.

Moving on.

The Mocal SP1T is a thermostatic sandwhich plate and should clear your bracket. It has a diameter of 85mm . If not you can modify the brackets on the next run to clearance it or continue using the Canton stuff.
All great products.

I donít think clearancing my bracket will help. 85mm diameter will run into one of the bolts. Perhaps the Mocal part can be clearanced? Or maybe there is a 75mm sandwich plate spacer available?

Maybe some sort of in-line thermostat exists so the Canton coolant spacer could be used, but the flow could be blocked on the outlet side?

Edit: Sort of like what Samgrant951 posted. That would be ideal.

Friend pointed me towards this interesting project on Instagram. Overboost Drift Team in Denmark has (had) an 07k swapped and running in a Nissan S14.
https://www.instagram.com/overboost_driftteam/?hl=en

They unfortunately had a bad sump/pickup design and starved the engine of oil in their first drifting test a few days ago.

Vertical mount using a Quicktime bellhousing (probably the RM-4082).
Modded IE intake manifold
IE valve cover
ECU Master standalone
Custom sheet metal lower pan welded to the upper.

I donít know how I missed that... thanks Sammy. I will probably go this route if I need a thermostat.

Never had an issue with my LS warming up without a tstat on the oil cooler, but it also liked to run hot all the time, as you know.

Thanks for posting these, Alex. So, dry sump obviously. Did they say what was wrong with the pickup design? Looks like they pointed the pickup ports upward sticking out of the top; never seen that before. Wonder if that was the problem. The other thing that seems atypical is that they basically had to split the sump into two with that really deep cut through the middle for a cross member, I assume?

Here, It's on Instagram.


They dyno'd the engine a couple times, put in a bigger BOV outlet, and looks like they managed to get it going upwards of 8K.

This is going to be the coolest part you’ve done on this project, looking forward to seeing the finished product!

That is, until the intake manifold comes out. This definitely has a lot of work and development into it, and it's so impressive to see the amount of effort going into everything. Well done Alan. Think we can get a group buy list going for these yet?

Itís probably the most challenging. I think itís going to turn out good.

Yes, it would be great to figure out who wants one. I think in lieu of taking deposits, it would be better to have everyone ship me their upper oil pans. That way Iíll be able to start the production run sooner.

Iím getting oil pan machining and sheet metal parts quoted in qty 20... hoping that most people that are in the bellhousing group buy will also want the oil pan.
