I thought some factory did this on a brand new engine, maybe it was the new GM v6, i don't remember but it does sound familiar for some reason.

It's not done now, and from all of our testing and some "outside ;) " sources it's not necessary. :)

It certainly would be a cool idea, the new HF V6 uses it and the ecotec has it for boosted applications. Might be a little more trouble then it's worth though.

it seems to me that maybe it be worth doing if you were rebuilding the block. Im not sure exactly how the guy kit works but if the block needs to be machine it wouldnt cost the much more to add it.

I think this would be a good idea if the engine were designed to run it from the factory, but adding it in afterwords would be harder to integrate. You'd want your oil pump to move a higher volume of oil and then I'd also worry about starving the actual important parts (bearings, lifters, etc) from oil. I just don't know if the existing oiling system could support 6 nice sized "leaks" in it.

Dan
thank you for your interest in BLP Products Inc
Yes we do still sell the Dome oiler kits.
They can be used on a stock block, and althought a high volume pump is not
required it is reccomended for this application.

I be getting a price pretty soon

Er...but we dont have a high volume pump/gears out there. We just have high pressure kits. Good idea yes, but I dont think it would be all that fuseable for our engines.

We all want high volume...so we just increase the pressure a little to make up for not being able to move more oil/volume.
