    Exclamation Need serious help please!

    I'm thinking about picking up an lt1 that's .60 over with a vortech T trim supercharger. The motor is completely forged and has under 100 miles and the sc is new.
    So the problem is when the car is running it runs fine, besides high oil pressure (between 60-80 psi) which the owner attributes to a high pressure/volume oil pump. But when the accelerator is pressed even 1/3 throttle oil starts to pour out of the dipstick tube.
    What could cause this? Worst case scenario and best? Any fixes?

    Improper venting and over filling, like way over filling, also lok at the oil lines for for the SC (I ahve limited knowledge of such things) and see where that are routed. Also check to be sure the cank case is properly vented I doubt a stock PCV set up could handel the pressure from the SC on the crankcase.

    I'm not too familiar with SC cars but 60-80 seems a bit high.

    Are you modded? If you're stock you could have a lot of sludge build up causing higher then normal pressure.
