Dry Sump Tank, 508mm tall, 127mm diameter
Dry sump tank 5″ (127mm) x 20″ (508mm), allow 22″ (559mm) for breathers, comes with -12 male ends.
Capacity – approx 5L.
No Base Plate.
Fully splitable washable tank with built in baffles.
Can be used with Vauxhall, Duratec, EcoBoost & Hayabusa engines.
Due to the extremely clever design & complex baffle system, we designed this tank specifically to cope with the problems that can be associated with the Hayabusa engine, therefore we have designed it slightly differently to a normal dry sump tank. It has been made taller than normal and there is additional baffling to further improve air separation from the oil (please do not confuse this with other similar looking tanks). As far as using a circular tank is concerned, it is far more efficient for the returning air and oil mix to be spun around the wall of the round tank, so the air separates out and only oil can then reach the bottom of the tank.
Never to use forged 90-degree couplings. They create cavitation due to the fact that they prevent free flow, basically the problem is the coupling effectively has 2 opposing drills. This means that when the oil is fed at pressure instead of going through a smooth curve as it would with a swept coupling, the oil reaches the end of the drilling, some of the oil will pass around the corner and some will bounce back. We have seen engines fail by simply the addition of one forged coupling anywhere in the oil system, so we never recommend the use of this type of coupling because the only way to find out will be to see if your engine destroys itself.
