In a dry sump, engine oil is stored in a tank outside the engine rather than in the oil pan. There are at least two oil pumps in a dry sump - one pulls oil from the sump and sends it to the tank, and the other pump takes oil from the tank and sends it to lubricate the engine. The minimum amount of oil possible remains in the engine. Dry sump advantages over wet sumps: Because a dry sump does not need to have an oil pan big enough to hold the oil under the engine, the main mass of the engine can be placed lower in the vehicle. This helps lower the center of gravity and can also help aerodynamics.The oil capacity of a dry sump can be as big as you want. The tank holding the oil can be placed anywhere on the vehicle. In a wet sump, turning, braking and acceleration can cause the oil to pool on one side of the engine. This sloshing can cause oil starvation as the pick-up loses contact with the oil or could cause the crankshaft to dip into the oil as it turns.
Excess oil on the crankshaft can cut horsepower. Dyno improvements of as much as 15 horsepower by switching to a dry sump oil system. 12ORB To -12AN Screened Plugs. Stainless Steel Crankcase Oil Scrapers.
