what was the point of this?
Can you post one pic of it empty? Just to get a reference point.
Btw, id like to point out that even with 7 QUARTS ENTIRELY IN THE PAN, with none in the filter or oil cooler, or heads, etc, the crank scrappers are still above the fluid level. obviously a crank counterweight can't be below that, now can it.
4 Quarts fills the sump entirely, without an opportunity for sloshing.
No chance for windage or aeration, because as I stated, the oil level is NO WHERE NEAR the crank.
wow! i wonder what would happen if you actually put 9 quarts in your car!
please tell me you're kiddingoke:
excellent, pretty much proves no harm in running 7 quarts. As quad says, thats 7 all in the pan which never happens anyway.
Good post thank you!
this should be a sticky
Thats exactly what me and my buddy from this site Chrome98Cobra were saying. The oil is no where even near the crank. I'll post that empty pan pic here in a few minutes.
Very nice work. Interesting and scary. I'm going right out and check my oil... again. Thanks for taking the time to do the test.:beer:
Thats why I always put 7 qts.
Yeah no problem. I was curious myself and scared after doing the test...lol
Empty pan pic is posted at the top!
Id also like to mention that the oil pan is designed better than I thought. There is a slight baffle to reduce sloshing.
But with 4 quarts in the pan (which I believe is typical if you actually pour 7 quarts into the motor and have it running) there is almost NO chance that you will uncover the pickup.
very true quad, where are the MACH boys now?
Awesome pics!! It's time for an oil change too. 7qt ftw.
So we dont have any exhaust leaks.:kaboom:
sticky this baby!!!
I didnt know there was an argument over this.....
Science trumps stupidity again! Nice pics, and I think a comment or two regarding this should be included in a sticky...7 quarts!
BTW, I hope you used GC or Redline for the test!
