I have also heard the manual valve is the way to go as well.

What do those systems run anyhow? I've seen JID's at a track day, and can't help from thinking I should have a similar failsafe at some point soon.

i have a 3 quart accusump positioned just behind me and in the middle of the car,i had mine in conjunction with the ams oilpan but the oilpan kept leaking under pressure so im back on the oem pan,little leaks at the track drive you nuts so i wasnt dealing with the ams pan anymore ,ive also heard from other guys that they had slight fitment issues with the pan
When i start my car (i have mine wired in)i hear the accusump push the oil into the oil gallery and then when the oil pressure builds it will show up on my gauge and obviously on the gauge on the accusump but i cant see that when im driving
I thought at some point you might get parasitic drag from the excess oil but if you do get it its got to be for a very short time,i like having mine,peace of mind
Oil change in my car with the biggee oil cooler is about 10 qts

This is a little more extreme than I want to do with my track car, but what about running the HLA Regulator?

Anyone have any comments on that piece?

I just installed a Kiggly HLA before my last time attack. I was having issues with my catch can filling up super quick, the HLA seemed to reduce oil in catch can by 50%.

^ with catch can fills up quicker? my front one seems to fill up twice as fast as the back one. and the oil seems to be very thin, like a mix of water or gas.

Does the HLA Regulator actually help keep oil in the pan? Is it safe to assume this would help with picking up oil mid turn under high G forces? I was considering this and eventually a baffled pan if I get quick enough.

Where do you plumb the return line from the accusump?

And if you were lazy, most likely while daily driving, would it do any harm to keep the valve closed with the tank full?

It gets plumbed into the oil filter housing. There is nothing wrong with leaving it closed. I open mine and and wait till I see 25-50 psi of oil pressure on my gauge then start the car, then bring the rpms up a little over 2k and it refills to 100lbs then I close it and leave it closed on the street. When I leave it open I just forget about it and then I don't have any oil it it for pre lube for the next start. On the track I open it, start the car and go. Then close it as im coming into the pits at about 4k RPMS.

Thanks! So both the supply and return lines come off the filter housing?

The supply line is the return line. Only one line between the filter housing and the accumulator.

I wouldn't think so, but it couldn't hurt.

I have the Moroso pan, but I'm definitely going to consider this.

Lots of great info!
