I do and the oil pan from mmr sits too lowGame plan is to have everything ripped apart down to the short block soon. Going to bring short block to L&M Race Engines next Friday to have them clean everything, check the bore, and start looking everything over. In a perfect world, I'll just need new bearings and piston rings, and the short block will be good to go. First thing up, I'm running a stock oil pan. Now would be the time to upgrade. I'm not normally a fan of MMR, but anybody running their 7 qt with windage tray? I'm only running a stock pan now with a stock 4v oil pump and a 15/16 pickup. Will I be able to use my same 15/16" pickup with this pan without any issues? Do you guys think the wind screen would be worth the extra coin? I also plan to upgrade my stock gears in the 4v pump to TSS billet gears
Great advice, thank you! I’ll definitely look into that first before I go ripping the hotside off.Before going that route look into changing the WG air lines to something larger and make sure the bleed hole at the valve has nothing restricting it like a muffler.
The WG's use those little hoses to exhaust the air pressure from the domes but if they are too small (1/8") then the air can't escape fast enough so the boost spikes.
If they are smaller than 1/4" tubing then you may want to try this and again, make sure the exhaust hole on the valve is wide open and no "muffler".
I used to have a 3-4psi spike with 1/8" lines but went to 1/4" lines and that fixed it even tho the lines are now longer.
