Pumped Up 8

For many high-performance applications, the size of the sump may be larger than stock. For most street-driven cars, chassis and ground clearance requirements dictate the depth (and width) of the oil pan's sump area, so for many applications, wide sump pans are available.

At engine speeds above 6,000 rpm, the moving oil can whip the crankshaft and cost power. This phenomenon is called windage and is minimized by installing either a windage tray or a semi-circular screen to move the oil away from the spinning crankshaft without splashing back on the throws.
