Dry Sump Tank Insert & Oil Pan Baffle Kit
Dry Sump Tank Insert & Oil Pan Baffle Kit For LS7- Z06
A must have for any track day either racing or just out for hot laps.
Why risk running your tank dry and costing you an engine.
Aviaid, a leading manufacturer of high performance oil systems since 1961 and builder of the dry sump systems that were employed on the Callaway Corvettes that won the GT-III manufacturer’s points championship in 2007, has released a highly effective tank insert for use in LS7/Z06 Corvettes. The tank, insert, and a complete dry sump lubrication system can also be retrofitted to any C6 Corvette, while a system for the C5 requires an in-trunk tank.
The primary function of the insert is to control the flow of oil within the tank, and assure that an ample supply of lubricant is available to the pump. This eliminates the starvation problem that can occur in OEM setups during hard acceleration, braking or cornering. It also functions as an air separator and helps prevent oil from getting vented back into the intake manifold.
Installation of the Aviaid tank insert is relatively simple, and requires only hand tools and a marking device. A detailed instruction sheet is furnished with the product, and is also available for review on the firm’s website.
Baffle kit for the oil pan is very much needed. The stock oil pan has no baffling and during hard corners or high rpms the oil pan can be sucked dry thus loss of oil pressure and issues with the bearings. The baffle kit will direct the oil right to the oil pick up tube for a more consistent oil feed.
Aviaid offers other products to augment Corvette factory oiling systems, including a 2-stage scavenge-only pump that can attach to the cylinder head or A/C mount and leaves the OEM pump to handle only the pressure side, or 3-stage scavenge/pressure setup that bolts to the block. There are also several oil pan and tank options.
