1997 Mustang GT with Vortech supercharger oiling question
Okay, so I dont want to tap my pan if this thing (that V2SQ I got) ends up being a hunk-o-crap. I was trying to devise a secondary oiling system so it could get oil circulating through it, but be external of my engine.
What i have come up with is using an automotive fluid pump, an oil catch can, an oil cooler, and various fittings, and lines. The kit would be comprised of basic 5/8ths hose, and the pump is an in-line style that pumps oil at 8-12psi... About what an engine with a stock oil pump would run. The catch can would be used as an oil pan, with the return coming in the top port and the intake coming from the bottom. Everything would be run through the oil cooler mounted on the radiator to bring the oil to engine temperature in cold days, and keep it at normal operating temperature the rest of the time. Filtering it would be taken care of a screw-off (that's me) type oil filter. The entire system should be about 2 quarts, and having it run just the SC should be more then adequate.
So does this sound like it will work? Any thoughts?
