Cool dry sump on a caddy?

i tryed serching the forum, and it wont pull any thing up. so i thought i would just ask.

any one ever see, hear of, or have a dry sump system on a 500?

i have tryed serching the net, and i hate doing it. i never find what im looking for. im building a race car and will be using a 500. i need to run a dry sump set up, because i will have a drive shaft running right under the pan. i have a huge remote system from amsoil, so filtering is no problim. i would like to elimnate the oil drive rod, and exturnal pump all togather.

any ideas?

$5000, thats insane! what about just a pan? i can do it my self, but it would be much easier if the pan was pre built.

Well - if you send a block and timing cover to Williams Performance they can build you a pan. Would be about $1500 to $2000

Good luck.

Price a system for a Chevy, like these guys.

Then remember a 472/500 pan, the mounts, and many other part will be one off custom parts.

Default Drysump

Mr Rock

How big a hurry are you in for a oilpan ?

Drysump pans are a bit pricey but I am sure we can thru some recent new connections get you a dry sump pan built.

If you can provide some info on how much clearance you need under the pan we can help you but it wont be a 2 week deal as our new oil pan guy is very busy.

You probably don't need such an exotic lubrication system as a dry sump.

An accu-sump system, plus an OEM mid sump oil pan with the rear section cut out, boxed in & baffled, would most likely provide all that you would ever need.
