Yeah I'm going to have the engine out so I was thinking about doing it while it's able to be done.I have an Improved Racing, but not sure if it makes a difference or not
Just curious...you've spent a lot of time at the track; have you logged oil pressure data with a stock set up? Supposedly the stock design allows momentary oil starvation at launch...I have one. I didn’t have issues with the stock baffle so it’s hard to tell if it helped. It certainly hasn’t hurt.
OUCH!but most ended up going with an $800 moroso copo camaro pan.
Yes I have stock bottom end, full bolt ons.That's the intended purpose for the improved racing baffle. It has a sump with trap doors on 3 sides iirc (front and each side), so it can handle side to side g's and hard braking and keep oil at the pickup.
If you're still running a stock bottom end with LSA oil squirters, most of your oil will stay in the bottom of the motor anyway. The bigger problem comes with HV pumps that pump all the oil to the top of the heads and the drainback is less than the motor consumes.
Do you mean upgraded oil pump? Isn't the problem that the lsa has to high of output ?I have the improved racing baffle installed with stock pan, I don't have any prior logs to compare, with that said, I have not logged any pressure drops due to not having the baffle. However, in my particular setup I do have slight drop in oil pressure at WOT high mph rpms due to lower flow than optimal oil pump that I plan to change out come next engine rebuild time. The baffle decision for me came down to added insurance.
The LSA PN: 12612289 oil pump would be a good replacement to the stock PN: 12586665 oil pump my LSX376-B15 long block was delivered with. The higher pressure/flow LSA pump accommodates the LSA oil squirters that cool the thin cylinder sleeves. My LSX376-B15 engine has very thick cylinder sleeves, no squirters, and could benefit having the extra 30% flow and pressure common to the LSA pump based on my data logs.Do you mean upgraded oil pump? Isn't the problem that the lsa has to high of output ?
What does this do?Why stop at baffles? Might as well install a scraper too.
