The graph looks very good. What all did you do to your engine/oiling system to get these successful results? Is it a proprietary system?

Thank you,

Steve

My previously posted graph shows the oil pressure going up and down wildly in response to G forces. This is what is happening inside most M96 or M97 engines when they are being driven hard.

It is not uncommon for the oil pressure to drop below 1 bar due to G forces. I accidentally and expensively proved to myself that the oil pump generates about .75 bar worth of air pressure even without any oil in the engine. So, if the pressure is below 1 bar there is essentially no oil being delivered to the bearings. The engine fails once it accumulates enough run time without oiled bearings.

These engines are remarkably tolerant of this situation. I cannot explain that.

I am curious to.
I am planing on plumbing two electric oil pumps to the heads. Pump the oil down into the deaerators in the sump. Kind of poor mans version of Porsches tandem scavenge pumps that run about $4000-$5000.
Ad this to a deep sump, improved horisontal baffles and an Accusump. Then monitor the result in similar way that you have been doing and see if I still get fluctuations....

This may help explain what tests were done later to proove the problem had been solved - but how?

Chris did you add another scavenge pump and pickup? I had the TTP pump on my 987.1S along with accusump, X51 baffle and 996 Defoamers. It has held together for quite a while now (on the third owner). Expensive setup but cheaper than new engine.

So I recently heard that the third owner killed the engine "with slicks" but I don't know the exact failure mode. Still very interested in learning what Chris came up with!

EDIT: Looks like Chris has a solution: https://rennlist.com/forums/racing-a...mp-system.html
