Put me down for one
Hello there.....is it wrong thinking on my part that this will somehow get hit since it is lower that the stock set-up? I like the idea of more oil and curing the starvation of oil issue which I know nothing about. Please share a little more of why this is a good idea. Thank you very much.
Its a common concern but in reality the sump once installed is no lower than the engine mount bar. If you are dragging the sump on anything, there is something else going on ~
Its purpose it to MAINTAIN oil pressure.
The 914 was designed to be capable of navigating curvy roads at high rates of speed and (with the right tires) + G-force's.
The result of which is to cause the oil in the bottom of the engine to slosh away from the pickup. By extending the PU into a small oil reservoir at the lowest point of the engine, that should never occur.
Hey Rich I need to put an order together for you!
Do these leak any less than the stock sump cover? Any special consideration need to be done when installing or extra gaskets required?
Just put in an order. I think you had sump extension instructions posted somewhere?
@http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?showuser=453 - Rich, are these steel or aluminum? When you go to order it shows a "Raw" as to the finish but the pictures show metal or black finish.
