    dry sump for ls1?

    I saw a special on the new zo6 yesterday, and they were talking about how it has a dry sump oil system, and it got me thinking..Would it be possible to install a dry sump system to an ls1?

    i saw the z06 build also, pretty amazing how it's all done, i didn't realize the whole transmission configuration that it has, but sorry man, not sure about the dry sump oil system, i'm sure there's something out there, how much u got to spend though, lol

    Yes, there are several kits for it. But it's not cheap, and it's not easy. You probably don't need one anyway.

    unless you are heavy into RR and hitting some serious Gs..a dry sump is not needed...if i am not mistaken i believe a dry sump system requires a longer snout in terms of the crankshaft.

    I agree. If ya don't do hard cornering, then you don't need that setup.
