i'll be in "wussy mode" on the roadcourse until i get an accusump in mine. i trust that motor about as far as i can throw it.offroadr35 said:So now that we have our cars, has anyone gotten an Accusump system? I have heard it is a wise thing to do in this car when using it a lot on the track.
Paraphrased from Toyota Engineering white papers:Beanie said:I believe there are baffles in your oil pan (unlike the 1ZZ engine) so this should help prevent oil starvation. Still, with a car that pulls more Gs than anything else the 2ZZ has been in and the cost of repair, I'd do it. -- Just my two cents.
I could have sworn I saw an actual picture of baffles in a 2ZZ oilpan.... will search.aletes said:Paraphrased from Toyota Engineering white papers:
The stock Toyota 2ZZ-GE oil pan has no baffle. According to Toyota this quickens the return of oil into the oil pan. Air suction was minimized by optimally positioning the suction pipe inlet. The 2ZZ-GE can withstand 1.0G without sucking air.
I would like to use the oil radiator location for a pair of air-to-water intercooler radiators.TimMullen said:Although an Accusump could be a good idea, why change the oil coolers? The Elise already has oil coolers...
