Title: FSAE engine dry-sump oiling system design
Authors: Carr, Ethan
Rogozinski, Michael
Issue Date: 26-Mar-2007
Abstract: We have been requested by the Drexel FSAE team to build an alternative oil system for the 2004 race car engine. Engine mounting location in the chassis does not allow for the original oil system to remain because of space limitations. Therefore, we propose to design and build a “dry sump” oil system which will not only follow the space limitations of the chassis, but also give a power increase to the engine. Our approach to the problem is to determine the flow requirements of the engine, design/purchase components based on these requirements, manufacture/build the system, and finally validate its performance with testing. The anticipated outcome is to have an oil system which will operate flawlessly under the intense conditions of a racing environment, which includes acceleration, braking, and cornering. The system will also increase the power output of the stock engine.
