So for a DD and weekend street car would you even worry about the stock oil system?

Would you add in the Accusump? A 2 Quart would be ideal? or is that still even over kill?
Yes even the 100.00 scraper would be a total waste of time and money and no one can prove otherwise , they can give there opinions on what works on OTHER engine but were talking about the Focus engine here

No I wouldnt worry about the stock oiling system , keep it under 7400 and go have fun , chances are you will never have an oiling system failure

Accusumps are great I like them a lot for cold starts and cornering , are you realy going to be pulling a lot og "G" cornering

I have hundreds of miles on my SVT ar VIR making over 300HP and on the all stock engine , no issues
