Scott, are you saying that you had an oiling related failure while using an Accusump? Just clarifying.

Not sure. I've now spun two rod bearings with no over-revs. I never saw an oil pressure drop but it's hard to watch the guage in the corners.

That is the type of failure I had as well but I wasn't using an Accusump. Did you have an Accusump?

What I am being told is that for the Spec Boxster the Accusump is enough to protect from oiling issues.

Yep. Plus x-51 pan and baffles. I'm not sure that either was oil related but it's getting old whatever it was.

I know your pain first hand and agree.

Someone should have warned you that all of Tim's ex-cars are cursed

Just the motors, Tim never had much luck with motors after Dan J. voodoo'd that Ex-Koni car by telling him to buy a spare motor and carry it with him!

Yeah, I guess it really needed to be a live chicken. I was hoping Mr. Chicken would do it.

Actually you need to order a 1/2 chicken dinner, all dark, mac salad on the side.. then all would have been well.

Not the first time a nice pair of breasts has gotten me in trouble.

I should have the pan prototype completed next week. It took a few revisions that I had to make on the CAD program, but I got it done. It looks like it will be awesome! Stay tuned.

Anyone know if PCA allows a drysump if it uses the internal oil pump? I know that external pump driven dry sumps are not permitted!

The kit is done. The problem is that a friend dropped an m6 washer inside the crank/rod area while on an engine stand. I think Vision motorsports will tear it down and find it. I wish I knew this motor like I know other motors. I would do it myself.

This motor is easy in contrast to a 911, just pull the pan and rock it back and fourth until it drops out. Put a pan or a white sheet on the floor below so you know when it drops out...

I rotated that motor on my stand almost 50 times. No luck!
