NOTICE

Supply-chain disruptions have hampered our ability to restock items reliably. Many sought after parts are backordered without ETA info -- backorders with unreliable restock ETAs are VERY frustrating for us as well. We are doing what we can to adapt and recover from the changes to our industry, but currently many shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed). Even if we can't reply to your email promptly, please trust that we ARE working on getting delayed items back into stock for you, and we will contact you when we have any updated news. We appreciate your continued support and understanding.


When you place an online order request, you can opt to have in-stock items processed for shipment in advance of any backordered items. For out of stock items, you are NOT CHARGED, you are automatically added to the reservation waitlist, and we post stock status / backorder info to your Order Status/History Detail View in your online Customer Account. You can email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not special order or made/machined-to-order.

Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Requested items could be delayed by supplier-level backorder, and we usually aren't given reliable ETA information. We work diligently to source and fulfill your request for items as best we can.

3.5 Quart Thin Line Super Capacity Deep Sump, Type 1 and 3 Engines, Internally Reinforced, 00-9143-0
3.5 Quart Thin Line Super Capacity Deep Sump, Type 1 and 3 Engines, Internally Reinforced, 00-9143-0


 
3.5 Quart Thin Line Super Capacity Deep Sump, Type 1 and 3 Engines, Internally Reinforced, 00-9143-0 is a good quality sump, in a 3.5 quart wide version. This provides additional oil capacity for fast street engines, without hanging down like traditional 3 and 4 quart deep sumps. When you bolt this onto the bottom of your vw engine, you increase the oil capacity from 2.5 to 6 quarts, and the chance of sucking all the oil out (before it has a chance to run back down) is minimized! This sump comes with all the mounting hardware, and the mounting is well engineered to make it a relatively easy job as far as sumps go. This sump only adds a mere 2.75" to the bottom of your engine case, for maximum ground clearance, while adding 3.5qts of oil capacity!

Contrary to what a lot of guys will tell you, deep sumps do not offer additional cooling, their purpose is for a steady supply of oil for the pump to supply to the bearings. If the pump starts sucking air the bearings do not last long!

This kit includes the sump, allen headed mounting bolts that are VERY secure, hardware and gaskets, and the pick up tube extension. Welding the oil pick up tube extensino is best, but this is only "easy" when the engine is completely apart.

Not many people know this, but the PROPER method of setting your oil level when you are running a deep sump, is to run it 1/2 quart "Low". In other words, on your dipstick the "Add" mark becomes your "Full" mark, and the bottom of the dipstick becomes your "Add" mark. Even doing this you have an additional quart of oil! This lower oil level will lessen oil droplets getting whipped up and blown into your air filter or breather box! Try it!
