    G'day Geoff,
    1. Mount the catch can as high as possible. Preferably higher than the cam cover breather pipe as syphoning can occur when mounted lower. The small drains allow the head to fill with oil quicker than it can gravity drain back to the sump. Even better would be to have the catch can drain back to the sump like the original system.

    2. I tried just about everything before eventually dry sumping it.
    XU10 oil pump with shroud over the sprocket and baffle fitted to it. Trapdoor baffle at gearbox end. XU10 windaage tray mounted to the sump spacer. Fitted an Accusump for the low pressure moments due to braking or cornering inertia. I fitted a mechanical oil pressure gauge to keep an eye on pressure but of course by the time it shows a low reading, probable damage has occurred.

    Happier now that it's dry sumped & with a season of SuperSprints at 8250rpm nearly completed it's holding up reliably. I can spend my time looking at the track rather than one eye at the gauge.
