When competing in time attack with almost ten times the power the car left the factory with, generating several times the force of gravity in lateral acceleration, the difference between a dyno queen and a reliable performer is dependable oil supply. The M50 family of engines already have a poor wet sump as the logs show, even with an oil accumulator. Even with a stock performance envelope, they come off the track with the lifters (and sometimes, rod bearings) sounding like a machine gun. With my drysump setup from ARE, my oil pressure logs can be easily confused for the RPM signal, even in the highest G turns. The pump provides steady pressure, adjusted to what I want (100psi compared to the stock 60), the scavenge stages providing so much steady vacuum that it's not easy to open valve cover cap at idle. And when the oil makes it back to the tank, it looks almost like it just came out of a bottle thanks to the Spintric air-oil separator. The new ARE vent can allows me to mount the can above the tank as needed without needing to have the breather element sticking out of the bodywork. When you consider the cost, effort and down time required to rebuild an engine, a drysump system from ARE is possibly the cheapest insurance policy you will ever buy. And if it matters to you to have American engineering in your car and getting support like you are dealing with family, then that is a feature that comes free with all ARE products.
