Our dry sump systems and Spintric work great! We love the reliability of the ARE dry sump and the Spintric is an amazing device too. Our oil system is working fantastic.

Ultra 4 Champion and King Of Hammers winner many times over, JASON SCHERER wrote- Hey Gary... Thanks for making the best Dry Sump Systems and your new Spintric Air / Oil separator is awesome! As hard as we push in Ultra4 racing anything we can do to improve longevity and make maximum power is a welcome addition. With ARE dry sump pumps and Spintric air to oil separation systems we can run every mile as hard as possible. Thanks for the past 10 years of support Gary!

After running my Corvette at Nurburgring 12 lap sessions,  my oil pressure is "rock steady" and the oil pump is not cavitating with air bubbles like it was before the Spintric® was added. The oil temp is down by approx. 10 deg F Attached are pictures of my installation, A quote to you from your dedicated Swedish Corvette racer.  Oil pressure is steady at WOT.  --Tompa

Your dry sump system and Spintric have been great all the time! I have continued with my racing now in Time Attack and last year I was on the podium all races :-)

When competing in time attack with almost ten times the power the car left the factory with, generating several times the force of gravity in lateral acceleration, the difference between a dyno queen and a reliable performer is dependable oil supply. The M50 family of engines already have a poor wet sump as the logs show, even with an oil accumulator. Even with a stock performance envelope, they come off the track with the lifters (and sometimes, rod bearings) sounding like a machine gun. With my drysump setup from ARE, my oil pressure logs can be easily confused for the RPM signal, even in the highest G turns. The pump provides steady pressure, adjusted to what I want (100psi compared to the stock 60), the scavenge stages providing so much steady vacuum that it's not easy to open valve cover cap at idle. And when the oil makes it back to the tank, it looks almost like it just came out of a bottle thanks to the Spintric air-oil separator. The new ARE vent can allows me to mount the can above the tank as needed without needing to have the breather element sticking out of the bodywork. When you consider the cost, effort and down time required to rebuild an engine, a drysump system from ARE is possibly the cheapest insurance policy you will ever buy. And if it matters to you to have American engineering in your car and getting support like you are dealing with family, then that is a feature that comes free with all ARE products.


Guy Burkhart:

We went to the Corvette Museum event at VIR was this past Monday and Tuesday and made it there and back safe and sound. AND WE HAD A BLAST!!!! My ARE Dry Sump and SPINTRIC equipped Corvette performance WAS OUTSTANDING!!! Can't wait to go back. I went knowing I had enough brakes for one day but it was worth it to see Jim Painter. And the car has never been this much fun. It must be that dang AFM device. (Guy coined the word "AFM" at the last trade show, hint, the last word is "Miracle" Ha!)

So here's the scoop.
With air temperature about 85 degrees, I had no higher than 215 degree water temps and oil temps never exceeded 235 degrees in the 4, 30 minute sessions. The car never skipped a beat , always good oil pressure and I have never had such low water and oil temps even with air temperature in the 80's. The Spintric definitely made the difference in having stable water and oil temps in my C6.

That's the truth and I am sticking to it. After adding the Spintric I finally have decent water and oil temps. Thanks to Gary, Phil, Darren, Sandy and the ARE crew!

Andreas Sweden - RalleyCross:

“Dear ARE, Moving from my third oil pump failure (NOT ARE pumps), resulting in 2 motor breakdowns, I was tired of listening to others on how dry sumps should work, so I did a research on dry sumps in the market. I have no earlier experience with dry sumps. I could pretty quickly make the decision to use the ARE system mostly based on their excellent service level and from other users. I went for the full system 4-stage pump and the Spintric.

My experience is very good, I don't see oil pressure reductions like before, and the whole system feels more reliable and safe. I opened the engine after 2 races and everything looks perfect. "

Steve Anslow - Australia:

"We are very happy with the Spintric. 
It has helped our oil pressure immensely from idle thru to high RPM and the 6" filter confirms there is zero wear in our engine since installing the Spintric. 
Works great! Thanks for a brilliant product!"

“Hi Gary and Team, I have now had a season with my dry sump kit installed. All parts have performed flawlessly. The car is still running relatively low boost at 19 lbs and has 426 wheel horsepower. Thank for a great product and good service when I was purchasing."

Addl info as of 08-09-2017

Before using the dry sump set up I had many engines fail, all big ends, I think this was a lack of oil in the wet sump setup.  All was adressed with the Subaru ARE Dry Sump Kit you supplied, NO more big end failing.  Now I realize that there is a high amount of air emulsion in my oil and I am adding a Spintric....update on the Spintric to follow....




Noel Ameele

"The Spintric dropped my max oil temp by 20+ degrees.   When I did the engine rebuild this winter, I was able to reuse the main bearings for this season.   The oil lubrication is obviously more effective than before installing the Spintric."
