Corvette and All LS-1 / LS-6 Gen III and
Gen IV Dry Sump Systems

Information Sheet
Stage I System

LS -1 Gen III and Gen IV Dry Sump SystemsThe Stage 1 dry sump system utilizes the stock internal oil pump for pressure (ARE #3LS1). A specially designed supply fitting provides oil from a three (3) gallon tank (ARE #7030) for constant oil pressure. It uses a two (2) stage scavenge only dry sump oil pump (ARE #3020) mounted on a modified A/C bracket / tensioner assembly (ARE #3020M), driven by a serpentine drive (ARE #4SERP pulleys and 4032S belt). The Stage I kit uses our #1005 cast alloy, CNC machined dry sump oil pan with high efficiency windage tray and offers Aeroquip o-ring fittings for the ultimate in sealing.

Also included is a specially designed ATI damper (ARE #8005) with 10% reduction ancillary drives, our #4010 CNC machined billet remote filter adapter, #7100 alloy catch can with filter vent, all fittings (male Aeroquip) and hardware.

This system is used on hundreds of LS-1 / LS-6 powered racing cars in a variety of racing categories from ALMS, Speedvision, World Challenge and GT Corvettes as well as the European V-8 Star series.
Components may be substituted or ordered individually.
