Accumulators don't address the root cause, they just throw oil back in when the issue is most prevalent. They also fail, have seen spun bearings on cars fitted with them. Nothing is fool proof. This is why we have engine protection....

See above.

 

I agree, I didn't mean get an accumulator and youre sorted - but it is a wonderfully affordable way of giving things a chance, they do work. End of the day, I think its crazy people are willing to drop $1500+ on a billet surge tank and 5 fuel pumps to protect from fuel surge, but not see the value of $500-$1000 to protect from oil surge ?‍♂️

A mate of mine is on his 4th LS.

His 2nd with the accumulator. 

TBF he is door to door racing for 10-15 laps per session.

Certain LS's do have issues with oil starvation, notoriously in long G left handers (like Winton has one of!).

As soon as you go R comp or better (say, slicks in the above example) this is something you just have to be aware of. Gen4 LS's are by far the most notorious for this problem. So much so that GM ship the cars with Drysumps from OEM..

If you go to the track.. really just have to be aware of this no matter what motor you run. Like posted above, feels like an Accumulator on a RB (or any older motor) should be mod #1 before anything power related even begins.

The only motors that seem to be "immune" to it (realistically less prone, not immune) are Renaults and MX5's somehow. Easy to find reports of race series using stock oil control for these motors..

Yet... I want to drive the problem prone one...

didn't put a hole through the block and through the body work.. no IG likes or won't be all over Snapchat

 

The reason I like of like the E90/2 M3 more is because it's rare(?) being a V8, it could potentially be a classic in say 10~15 years time.. who knows right?

 

It's definitely possible. The latter ones are still worth a fair bit but 07-09 got down to around 25k for both manual and dct which is a lot of car for the money.

S65 sounds great but they are finicky and are also torque less wonders ;)

Damn sad to hear the engine died after all that.

Part out and have babies?

I've found your new car. If it lasts as long as the the previous one he supplied for you, you're laughing.

Not too sure yet @niZmO_Man been so busy de-cluttering the house getting it ready to get it on the market.

Just picked up stock wheels off my mate and dug out my stock R33 seat.

Heading to out later to swap wheels and seat so the car isn't worth anything, since it's not in a very secure place.
