    Dry Sump?

    So, the order guide has the new turbo listed as a true dry sump; what's the deal, typo or is it true?

    Re: Dry Sump?

    I would assume it's a typo - the GT1 engine with true dry sump has gone. The 997.2 TT with A91 engine AFAIK has an 'integrated dry sump' (which, as has been discussed here on RT in depth before, is not a true dry sump but actually a form of wet sump).

    But maybe the issue is moot since it may be the case that the 997 Mk2 DFI engines may not suffer from oil starvation problems when tracked using slick tyres... Smiley I defer to those with more detailed knowledge to expand on this.

    Yeah, totally familar with the engine change. I agree, it you would think it was a typo, but, it certainly caught my eye.  


    Re: Dry Sump?

     

    I think if they made a version of the 9A1 with true dry sump and external oil tank, that Porsche would have stressed that fact in the press release.  The order guides are never an accurate source of current technical information (they usually lag behind in terms of updates and corrections).

     For example, the 997.2 GT3 USA Order Guide showed the sunroof as standard and that is not even an option in any market, afaik.
