Pan is going to BR to get their baffling put in around the pickup.

Do you have any evidence or links to threads of it not helping?

The baffle they weld in around the pickup is a pretty common design used on other engines, especially circle track cars. A $600 pan that I'll have to wait weeks or possibly months for is not in the budget or timeline.

The AMS pan doesn't even work well for turning. And it at least has trap doors and larger sump.

Yea I've seen the racefab pan. It's a decent piece but like I said, I'm not spending $600 on a pan and have to wait who knows how long to get it to and from NZ.

The baffling that BR does is proven out well enough to at least be better than nothing and it doesn't cost much. Eventually it'll get a dry sump so I'd rather not spend money on a pan that won't be kept long term.

I can't seem to find the thread, but testing ahs been done and the Buschur pan drops oil pressure just as fast as stock when turning. It may help for drag racing, but it doesn't do anything for turning.

Replacement rod came in from Manley Friday and I got my AMS oil cooler yesterday morning and got it installed. I'm very happy with how well it fits and look forward to seeing how it handles hotter days.

I'd second getting a racefab pan. It's been tested using big slicks and it's on a number of track cars . Added capacity , oil control and pickup moved. More capicity is also going to help with temperature control. Aside from adding an accusump or really fixing it with a dry dump it's the best option at this time.

Sure it's weeks away but cheap IMO compared to an engine ,oil cooler and labor.

I trust you guys but I'll look into it a bit more. I haven't sent out the pan yet so I'll try to find more testing on it. Seeing as I'm trying to get at least one more track day in before the end of the season (most tracks up here close in October) I'm going to get an oil pressure gauge and if I see pressure falling off then I'll call it quits for the season and put a racefab pan on my to do list for the winter.

All the more reason to have a proper oil pan.

Pm'd.


Got the crank back yesterday. Looks brand new, did take a .020" grind to get it fully cleaned up, a .010" cut just barely wasn't enough. Mains got a good polishing as well.

Ordering bearings soon. Hoping to have them by the end of the week so I can get the engine back together and in the car next week.




Something that caught my eye going through an oil pan thread was the pan that was put on outlanders that had a 4g63. It looks like s slightly taller oil pan and the lower sump seems like it might be a bit better than ours. Still has provisions for oil drain from the turbo. What I really like about it is how easy it would be to make a new lower section with better baffling/trap doors. Unfortunately I'm having a tough time finding one of these pans.

Also got a bit bored yesterday so I made a new cam sensor cover. Going to test fit it when I get home and it's all good then going to cut one out on a router or mill.




Edit: Fits pretty good. Time to move to metal.

Just found out there's a hill climb in Empire MI this Saturday. It's a very short hill climb, less than a mile long and it's only about two hours away from me. Pretty sad as it would've been a great event for me to cut my teeth and start to get into hill climbs

Printed a bracket to mount a catch can behind the driver's headlight. I'm happy with the fitment, working on toolpaths now to cut it out on a mill. Going to run a line from the balance shaft inspection hole and vta the can. I haven't seen any pcv related issues as is but more crankcase venting won't hurt anything.
