made some decent progress this weekend. Head gaskets came in so I was motivated to get out there and get some stuff done. I didn't get to the head gaskets as I wanted to get the timing belt tensioner and oil pump installed as well as some of the oil control bits for the sump.
This is the oil deflector setup from Kevin Johnson's crank scraper kit. The drains from the 5-8 cylinder head are aimed right at the spinning counterweights so I think these are a good addition. The 5-8 side of the block has all of the oil galleys in the way which is why Porsche didn't design the drains as they did on the 1-4 side.
this is the drain that is aimed at the counterweights.
This is one of the deflectors that redirects the oil straight down instead of onto the spinning counterweights.
I decided to not use the crank scraper portion of the kit because I had the crank polished and I I decided that the gains from the scraper would be minimal.
I did decide to use the sump divider and the trap doors which I think works really well.
Here are the pan mods to go along with the sump divider
