Default Accusump install

After ruining 2 cranks, I installed an oil accumulator from accusump. This the the 3 quart high pressure model. I used a b series vtec kit to get this sandwich adapter. It has a -8 o-ring boss port on the filtered side of the oil flow. I got that elbow, which wasn't cheap, a -8an hose and connector kit, a stainless 1/2" ball valve, and 1/2" npt coupler. It's mounted to some holes I found in the back because I didn't want to drill new ones. I planned all this while building a new block for my engine. I can now prime the engine with oil pressure before I start it and hopefully those left hand sweepers can't starve my engine ever again!

This is interesting. i have never seen this on a honda. Low oil pressure ruined the last 2 blocks? Was it on start up or after running them for a while?

I've had one of those sitting on the shelf for years. Needs to find its way into the Tape-R this year.

As an also, many track safety organizations do not like fluids flowing through the cabin. If you haven't planned for one yet, I would recommend building a bulk head over the sump and connections.

Really? Driving too hard before the oil had warmed up would be my first guess, to be honest. (Unless I've missed that it's not a road car?)

Sorry - that sounds a bit accusatory.
If the car's in normal use, I'd see the gadget as being a solution to a problem that shouldn't have been there in the first place. The standard oil pump with the correct oil and filter should be more than up to the job. Perhaps the pick-up tube is deformed or blocked.

What's the car, and what's the engine?

What are you using for valving? The auto systems sound like the hot set-up, but in our race car, it seems to be another thing to break. The manual versions sound more robust, but rely on us remembering to do the right things at the right times.

It's in a track car. Lots of grip and power will create oil starvation issues when cornering, even with pan baffles. Acuusumps do a good job filling in the low spots. We see this sometimes in our stage rally car, but it's more due to the roughness of the stages. Gravel roads get pretty bouncy at 90mph.

Ya, I doubt any of the races I go to will care. Maybe an NHRA track might. I wouldn't need it for drag racing anyways. I could disconnect it and hide the line under the carpet, that is, if I ever have a reason to drag race.

It's just a 1/2" ball valve. I'm in the testing stages. I open it before I start the engine. I get 20 psi on my gauge which is plumbed into the turbo line coming off the stock pressure sensor port. I do plan to put a servo on the ball valve for easier access. I might even write code into my ecu to control that. First I need to actually race with it decide how I want it to operate.

Then you close it before you turn off the motor, keeping pressurized oil in the sump?

Ah, OK.
It does make a difference!

The hose just runs along under the carpet to the right of the passenger seat and through the firewall.
