  • Lighten K-Frame for Charlie's Oil Pan

    This is what the lighten K-Frame looks like right now. Trust me, it is light. It needs to get powder coated, then the QA1 upper and lower control arms get installed. Then on the Texas Thug.

    I have had a number of conversations with Ken Lazzari (currently the race engine builder at Indy, formerly for Herb McCandless). And he says that on an engine close to 1000hp using a Milodon race oil pan, a vacuum pump is worth about 30hp because it helps with the windage. However a dragster style oil pan eliminates the need for a vacuum pump except for helping with reducing leaks.
