    We have made many upgrades and modifications on our stage 3's. So far we have had great Success and we are very comfortable running these builds up to 16lbs of boost. Now, will these improvements work when pushing 20+ lbs of boost? that we are still currently testing. We do have a more expensive option which basically eliminates any of these oil concerns and that is by eliminating the wet sump oil system. However, that doesn't mean something else cant go wrong. When pushing limits there will always be consequences, which is why we are dedicating so much time on testing to really see how far we can take these motors while still maintaining good drive ability and dependability.

    So you believe the problem is the oiling system? Is the issue the heat of the oil or the amount of oil reaching the bearings?

    The bearing you use for the built motors, are they different than the stock bearings?

    You know I will want to push 20+...
