You should look up R8.LMS on instagram he had to have his oil drain lines redone he might be able to share some insight with you on where they redid the lines for better flow.
Thats a v8, different motor different dry sump scavenge. Lex is building a v10.

Sheepey Race also use catch cans, look closely at attached picture and you will spot it. Any downside?
The question is where to pick the Oil feed.
CFI, will you share ?

I dig it and the price is right but I'd have to redo my hoses with the inlet and outlet on different sides. What is the OD of the inlet and outlet.

Small update connected the turbo oil feed to the pressure sensor ran no restrictor as im running journal bearing turbos then connected drain to a catch can that isnt vented and ran 1 line drain the plug in the back of the pan started the car oil pouring out of the turbo seals

Few questions does anyone know what the oil pressure at the pressure is?
Did i use a pressurized drain on the pan instead of a vacuum one?

You're going to have to return the oil somewhere above the oil level in the pan, perhaps the dry sump tank. So you'll need a scavenging pump. I can't be of much help here as my turbos are oilless.

I would imagine you could do that. The pump should be able to pump through what little oil is in the pan (dry sump). But a gravity drain alone won't do that alone, even with the reservoir you made.
