The Performance Racing Industry (PIR) Show is the big kahuna event in motorsports. It features the newest parts and technology, access to countless manufacturers and service providers, and unlimited opportunities to network face-to-face with industry leaders. The PRI Show is where the racing industry gathers under one roof for three days in December. Power Automedia is on the ground at PRI and we rolled up to the Aviaid booth and got a sneak peek at their newest product.
Oil systems’ pioneer Aviaid, the company credited with introducing dry sump technology to motorsports, has long thrived on providing innovative lubrication solutions for a wide range of applications. The Chatsworth, California firm’s most recent endeavor was creating a compact dry-sump system for the latest generations of the Viper V10 engine.
The new Viper package is centered on a 7-stage Series 1 pump that features five oil pan scavenging sections, one pressure section, and one section for scavenging a turbocharger. It is driven by an HTD belt and can be configured with as many or as few sections as desired. What’s more, a fuel pump can be driven off the back of the pump.
A specially engineered pan is fabricated from 6061-T6 billet aluminum and features a .250-inch-thick rail, a .125-inch body, and a .500-inch plate to mount the pump. The sump features five pick-up compartments with screened AN-12 fittings. The pan is also available without the pump mount.
Aviaid manufactures complete oil systems that include the pump, pan, sump tank, drives, and adapters. Most critically, this new product is modular and can be tailored to your specific application. The system has dozens of mounts and can adapt to almost any 4-6-8-10 or 12-cylinder engine (including early Vipers). For additional info, go here.
