Designed for high revving Zetec E engines where you want to avoid the complexities and costs involved in installing a full dry sump system. The Zetec engine is well known for oil pump failures on high revving units due to excessive crank flex causing the pump internals to shatter. To overcome this problem, OPI have designed an ingenious kit that uses a single stage oil pump, belt driven from the crankshaft, that replaces the standard oil pump as part of a wet sump system. By modifying a standard sump, the pump scavenges from the sump outlet and returns a pressured delivery through an adaptor into the oil filter location. Pump is mounted low so it is still possible to retain the air con pump after modifying the water pump outlet. Suitable for turbo and aspirated engines. Designed for black top engines but can be fitted to silver top engines using a modified lower black top sump. As successfully used on our high revving ST170 Time Attack engine.
