Are there any companies / individuals that have successfully created a dry sump oil system for the VR engines?....TIA
I searched for a long time and eventually decided to do my own. I have finished the pump bracket, should have the pan done within the week and gallery block-offs at least started. You can follow the build in the thread in my sig.

If you need help with an OIl pan , I did one years ago. Would still be willing to help with your project.
I need one of your systems. PM me... Going Dry Sump - You seem to have just as much OCD that I do with that neat setup.. Whaddya say?
What sucks in life is that you can only have two of these, no matter what you do:
FAST - RELIABLE - CHEAP
I'm doing a FWRC six stage on my VR. I was going to drive it off an extra mandrel mounted onto the damper, but after discussing it with several builders and engineers it seems the snout on the crank is too short to drive any extra off the front.
Has anyone had any issues with the piston oilers and dry sumps?
More recent picture... It is not running yet. I don't have any piston squirters in my drag block as they do nothing for you with foged pistons. The length of the snout will only complicate things if you can't work around it. Trying to do something like mine in a stock chassis might be a chore. Mine is going in a tube-front car with the motor tilted 22 degrees forward so I have no space limitations.
Will have a full write up and product info shortly
You can see the pan on our fb page:
Perhaps link to the actual article you speak of or pics instead of linking your profile page and leaving people to search through the pages of updates and crap?
