I am going to be rebuilding an engine in the coming months and I have decision to make. The engine needs rebuilding due to oil starvation during track driving.
To rebuild the engine I have two potential blocks to use. One standard Rover block, where I need to do the cutting into the webbing to mount the starter or another block where the previous owner of the car has installed piston cooling jets(oil squinters). I will be mounting a PACE dry sump system to the engine. The engine will also have forged pistons and rods, as well as Mahle motorsport bearings. The head is ported with 285H cams. The induction will be throttle bodies with Emerald K6.
Would the oil squirter have any negative impact? From what I could see they worked fine in the engine as long as I had a wet sump.
