L5P Duramax on the engine Dyno in Banks Cell #1 !

We’re working on our L5P marine, motorsports and retrofit, oiling system dynamics. An entirely new upper oil pan casting with turbo drainback ports on both sides and a new cast aluminum lower oil pan are being tested as well as a new SAE #3 flywheel housing casting for heavy duty and marine transmissions.

We’re measuring oil level in the pan and inside the front and rear of both rocker covers with the engine running wide open all the way from idle to the fuel cut at max rpm. We’re also measuring pressure in the lower pan and both valve covers as well as blow-by flow.

The goal is to be as good or better than the stock pieces in all respects, hold more oil and have very good high rpm capability at racing engine speeds up to 7,500 rpm.
