A dry sump is not neccessary unless there is something in the chassis constraining you from using the proper oil pan. Don't get me wrong, I do prefer a dry sump if the room and money allows it.

The wet sump will be reliable as long as the system is designed correctly. An external pump is a bonus, and in my opinion preferred if the room allows it... a Titan internal is almost as much money.... seems a little silly to me. But if you are constrained by room, that is a good route to go.

As for the vacuum pump, I wouldn't race without one with a wet sump, especially in a boosted application.

A good dry sump will provide vacuum with boost, so no need for the separate pump.

If you want vaccum with boost you will need a good pump, like a Dailey, or a 'good' Barnes like the 5 stage Pro Stock pump.... can't recall the number but it is something like 9025-5R or... just call them.

Both are around 2k for the pump.

Yeah. Nice pumps, I've used a couple, have one going on an engine right now but I really prefer a separate vacuum pump.

When it's left up to me on a wet sump deal, all my engines get a Peterson single stage external oil pump, and a Star Machine vacuum pump. Ultimate in reliability for a wet sump IMHO.

yeah talked to peterson they said 1,300 for the 5 stage then 400 for tank and then i will still need the mandrel ,lines,and hope i woul have enough room to mount it all how much are the titan internal pumps ? This must be why most of the cars ive seen run a interal pump I guess because with all the turbo stuff theres not alot of room for the tank up front plus its alot cheaper

chris what kind of money am i looking at for the wet external pump ? and how about the price on vacum pumpIm tying to see what is going to be the best for me and my wallet on a wet set up with external pump do they block the passages on the block where your oil pump would go like they do for the dry sump set up
