2ZZ Lotus Total Oil Control Wet Sump
This is the first step in curing the many oil related issues on the Toyota 2ZZ-GE powered Lotus (211/Exige/Elise), while retaining the stock wet-sump oiling system. If you’re dealing with momentary oil pressure loss, excessive oil vapors filling catch cans, oil pump cavitation due to aerated oil, oil foaming, etc, then you’re probably looking for our TOC Oil Wet-Sump.
This oil wet-sump is unique in many ways. Not only did we design it with great attention to detail such as AN fittings, correctly positioned sensor ports, easier access to service items on the car and pan, but the pan comes with more capacity than others and we know oil capacity in a wet-sump system is critical to preventing momentary oil starvation.
Additional features include a full-depth sump across the length of the pan, fore/aft baffles, taller baffled pick-up box with much tighter tolerances for a longer oil reserve in long sweepers, additional bulkhead with trap doors to ensure greater oil quantities in the proximity of either pick-up, oil temperature pick-up on the firewall side of the pan (no more awkward oil temp sensor wiring stringing across the bottom of the pan), allows for access to critical suspension components, no kick-outs like those found on clica pans that make service and installation difficult, and the list goes on…
