Pays to ask first, doesn't it? I'm interested in hearing their answer. My guess is you've got a solution.

Yes pleas keep us informed. Will you add the cooler and remote or just the Accusump for pre-lube? Seems like good insurance - cooler temps (thermostat controlled), more capacity, and easier filter swaps. Small weight penalty for the added benefits I'd say.

The long term plan is to add an oil cooler too. The block has several (3?) tapped ports above the oil filter, so (hopefully) the plumbing ought to be pretty straight forward.

I went w/ a drysump-

I did it mainly because it was my only option the fit the engine. This is a street car...more grand touring style.

Cost-

$500-600 for hoses/fittings I used Earl's- made in the USA and they had fittings I could polish - plus they have 30 fittings which I needed for my application.

Dry Sump Tank- $300- I went w/ a Canton as I was able to fit it under the hood after removing the vacuum tank. And they are really nice looking

3 stage pump $550- I went w/ a Nutter Racing pump- Looks like a lot of pump for the money- and the guy has some good references on the pumps and the motors he builds.

Drive belt system- $350 Some used parts- some made and Peterson HTD gears

Misc-bracket/breather $200 A Moroso breather and a custom made bracket

Oil filter canister- A stock BMW piece -has an output for oil cooler and it has a anti-drain-back valve built into it. Made some AN fittings for it and it's done. I used a banjo fitting for the mechanical oil pressure gauge. I ditched the clock and running an oil temp gauge in place of it.

Oil pan- stock pan modified-a good buddy of mine welded it together-I used some P/U with strainers to keep pieces out of the pump.

SO - easily over a couple grand- and I watched what I was spending but didn't cheap out.
