I have been there... Bought the tee shirt... Hahah. But unfortunately was unable to race on it. I was there for business and checked a few weeks in advance and it was going to be open. But the day before driving out I checked the schedule and it showed that there was a touring car race that got rescheduled for that weekend.wow very nice, you been to the nurburgring?! awesomeness! subbed
Thanks! have an oil pressure gauge, but no oil temp. I have a "spare" SVT Oil "cooler" have been thinking about running that or just going with a full cooler that uses a sandwitch plate w/ built in thermostat and run lines to a cooler.Use best judgement but without an oil cooler and the way the header runs under the oil pan adding more heat to the pan change the oil before each event. The zetec like the duratec carries tremendous oil temps and without an oil temp gauge this is the best cheap insurance. We just came off track running two duratec motor cars at Charlotte motor speedway. One 90 min enduro with extended time at full throttle in 3/4/5 gears and we saw temp over 350*. Nervous yes until I stopped looking at the gauge and just went to drain and fill before any event. Preventive maintenance on the car on every system is your best program. Spares brought to the track mean u won’t need them, it makes for a more enjoyable time at the track not wrenching
Thanks. I have a generic and admit crappy catch can. It is a Slick Speed one that was a two port which I made into a three port. The canister is located up where the battery would be. with no filter just a hose. I hook up to the valve cover and the crank and then have th vent hose routed down behind the front cross member.Not familiar with your catch tank but make sure u are routing the hose with an up hill travel to the tank and is the tank vented well. We have a duratec motor, the pvc system delete is on the front of the block. The catch tank is mounted drivers side on the strut tower. Not well vented, tank full, big filter on the tank almost no blow by, and that’s what your gettin. Don’t overfill the motor keep tabs on the level, over is almost as bad as under. Look at a bigger filter for more capacity. We ran at Charlotte Motor Speedway last week, after the review of the data and video we were hitting the limiter in 5th gear and we were in this gear longer than any other track we run, very little oil puking. Bent that catch tank. Pics were great, doing it with family is even more special. Congrats
Yea talking to a few people about the dry sump... its about a $1,600 mod to the engine. Thats the price of the built engine.We actually run thru 1/2 of turn one and then all the way around the big part of the nascar track thru 2/3/4 and down the front straight, I am entering the back straight off of turn 2 shifting into 5th gear so I carry it flat out for at least 1 mile until we enter the infield again. That entrance is at the end of the pit out for nascar. It is a stressful period for the car as it’s so long in wot in 5th. Try venting the tank as the first step before re-engineering what looks like a well developed set up. We had an accusump in the 4 door but we also had a cooler so while the accumulated oil in the pressure system was good, the base issue was the oil pump in the system. Now dry sump, dam I wish my rules allowed that, they don’t.
Non baffeled right? I have seen that one, looks like a clone or version of the Moroso one. which I guess costs a bit more becuase your buying the "name".I will try to get a pic of mine but my location is almost the same location as yours and it’s total capacity is about 1/2 quart. It has two ports on the side and one large bent on top. We sourced it from summit, less than 35$ if I remember correctly.
Humm, I thought part of the issue with oil coolers and other things was the drop in pressure seen before it gets to the block? The larger lines (which the good or name brand remote kits are all - 10AN fittings at the fittings) would remove any pressure drops related to moving the filter. I will do a bit more research on it. Have some time before I buy all the peices.Ok the idea of the relocation project is great, no to an 10 lines. Way to large, the oil pump will not keep up for the amount to travel to and from the filter. Calling out to Tom who has helped us with this very issue. If you are going to do the remote, small lines to setup. Tom if you see this please advise on an line size.
