      Dry Sump Tank Help

      I am dry sumping a crate LS7 in my 68 Camaro. Engine is installed and I am looking for thoughts and ideas for sump tank construction and location. To this point I have a clean, flat firewall installed and want to keep it that way. Considering locating tank where in the stock battery location. Any thoughts, ideas, or comments are appreciated.

      I located a customer's tank (69 Camaro, LS9 engine, see my signature for pics) in the passenger side hollow behind the front tire/in front of the rocker panel. Stef's Fabrication made me a custom tank that fit the area quite nicely.

      That's a nice setup. If I realized it could have been done like that I would have liked to have kept the dry sump.

      Mines located where the battery was on my 70 Camaro. I have seen people mount square tanks on the firewall and normal tanks inside the cowl (body fabrication required). I believe Peterson does have a specific 1st gen camaro tank for the battery area.

      If you don’t use a narrow/tall tank, youre not going to get the intent of the dry sump.

      Not as much room as you would think. I feel inside the cowl is a perfect spot! Maybe one day, thatís where mine will be going. Cris @ JCG has done it and I like it.

      I really like that tank setup that John posted. Just when you think everything has been done to these cars, that's really unique & really seems like it may just be the best solution for a dry sump tank. Nicely done!!

      The location is where I want mine to be as well. Why go with a square tank though?

      I do disagree that's the "best solution"...there are better tanks and alot of first gens have the tank where it is on my sec gen

      My customer's tank has an internal swirl chamber (the main reason for a cylindrical tank) and trap door access to the nooks and crannies once it's made its way through the swirl chamber. It allows for more oil volume since all the space is being utilized.

      If a cylindrical tank can fit there and provide adequate volume, then that'll be a less-expensive solution for sure.

      Peterson ls7 tanks

      I put mine opposite side of battery and hung breather off it.
      Breather has a drain hose attached.
      Required modifying fender, i also extended the fender down to protect tank from stones off front tyre.

      Best thing is it gets great natural cooling on the tank.

      See also I modified ls7 oil pan to have lines coming off the front

      Get them to make you a tank with a threaded cap. Not the generic twist cap...

      Hey
      Oil tank http://www.petersonfluidsys.com/drys...ecial-LS7.html
      Breather http://www.petersonfluidsys.com/breathercan-LS7.html

      Yes, I 3d printed it from ABS plastic and fitted a K&N Mercedes Filter
      It used to have a maf sensor, but my tuner thought the cam was causing issues, so he tuned it mafless. Its just has air temp now.

      How does it draw in air with the radiator there?

      The model looks like it basically sits on top of the radiator.

      Looks absolutely bitchin, though.

      What oil pan did you use? The stock LS7?
      Modify it?
      I just pulled the trigger on an LS7 with Late Model Racecraft 630hp kit.
      I got to figure out how to make it happen.
      Tank was damaged in wreck. So I need a Peterson tank and some kind of oil pan
      Thanks
