MAGNUS DRY SUMPS OIL SYSTEM
Magnus Dry Sumps continue to be sought after in every genre of Motorsports, including Performance Street, Drag Racing, Time Attack, Formula Drift and Rally cars.
Here at Magnus, we have been at the forefront of building race engines for the past two decades. When we say that we have done it all, we mean it, we have been through it all. Fortunately for the automotive enthusiast’s research and development being done by parts manufactures has been moving at such an unbelievable pace for the past decade and as engine and tire technology begin to reach new heights, the amount of G-force an engine experiences have increased dramatically. It has increased to the point where limitations to the factory engineered oil systems are being reached – a Dry Sump system has become a necessity.
High RPM launch control, Cornering, Launching, Braking, any one of these will upset the oil level in your car. In drag racing what we experience is 2 step launch control for 2 – 4 seconds (depleting the pan of oil) a multiple G-force launch, moving the oil to the back of the pan. High rpm runs in the 8500 – 11,000 RPM range, further deplete the pan of oil. Compound this with trying to drain back to the engine’s case while excess pressure from the rings try to push its way up to the valve cover.
Now, hit the brakes or pull the parachute! What little oil is left is pushed to the front of the motor. You can see why we resorted to overfilling our engines and immediately shutting them down after crossing the line. In road race applications it has helped tremendously in keeping oil pressure to the motor. Downhill sweepers where the OEM pump would have the problem of running dry. Overfilling the engines just would end up filling our breather tanks, causing other problems. All these problems together can cause the oil level in the pan to run below the oil pickup, causing the pump to run dry and destroy your engine, oil pump, or turbo.
MAGNUS DRY SUMP BREATHER CANS
Our breather cans significantly reduce positive pressure build up in the crank case, allowing your pistons to achieve higher RPM’s easier. Tanks include 3” filter and drain plug pre-installed, internal baffle, bolt in mounting bracket, -16AN female fittings that are meticulously Tig welded and hand spun from premium high strength, lightweight aluminum. Overall dimensions are 12″ x 3″ (including filter).
Consider Magnus anodized fittings for the best results – made in house at Magnus.
MAGNUS DRY SUMP GEARS AND DRIVES
Magnus Cam Gear HTD Drive Center MMCENG1018: Magnus Drive gear uses a HTD timing belt tooth profile to accommodate higher torque loads and is now integrated into the cam gear center section. Can also be used to drive other external components if necessary from the cam. Cam gears are universal and will fit Evo or DSM.
Magnus dry sump OIL PUMP PULLEYS are designed to give you optional shaft sizes (.500” and .625”), key gears sizes (.125” and .187”) ratios for your dry sump system to achieve that desired drive ratio. They are made from billet aluminum and feature a hard coat anodized finish for durability. Pulleys are available with several different tooth counts (32, 34, 36) to achieve the ratio that you need.

Lower crankshaft center line brings the VR38 engine to a more usable 8 – 9 inch crankshaft center line. Perfect for RWD tube Chassis cars, Street rods, Drift builds, Sports cars, and carbon monocoque vehicles that utilize the engine as a stressed member. 5 stage Peterson R4 Dry sump mounts are optional. Uses Factory GTR starter, factory GTR crank sensor, can be teamed with our billet flywheel and bell housing for 1 completely engineered combination. Will not work with factory oil pump, for use with Magnus Dry Sump components only.
2JZ-GE and 2JZ-GTE (MMCENG7000-005) : Magnus Motorsports Low Profile Billet Aluminum, one piece Dry Sump Oil Pan. Milled from 6061 Billet Aluminum, the rail thickness and added support structure promotes rigidity and durability, the total weight is 7.2 lbs. For use with 4 or 5 stage oil pump and a perfect match for the Magnus 2JZ Front Cover.
Subaru EJ20 / EJ25 (MMCENG2100-002) : Sump Pan with Integrated Mount is necessary for rally and high-performance applications. Our 100 percent billet dry sump pan is designed to mount our Dry sump pump directly to the pan. It also has a depression built in to allow Mounting of the Magnus MF fuel pump to the back of the Dry sump pump for those seeking tighter packaging.
4G63 (1G/2G/EVO) and RWD : The new updated version of our Dry sump pan features a 2-piece bolt together design which allows for disassembly and easy motor inspection. The sump portion of the pan can be configured to your specifications. This pan can be configured in RWD format or conventional transverse format. The Magnus dry sump oil pan will not work without the use of our Magnus 4G63 Billet front cover.

DRY SUMP OIL PUMPS BY PETERSON
Our Dry Sump Kits feature the Peterson Fluid Systems Oil Pump. The pumps utilize a revolutionary twisted lobe rotor design with all aluminum rotors in all sections saving a huge amount of weight while also increasing performance. The internal scavenge manifold and shallow depth screw in fittings make for a low profile which equates to easy mounting. Finally, the pumps are modular, enabling 3 to 6 stages. Note: Stages refer to total number of pumping bodies which include (1) pressure section. i.e., a 4 stage pump includes (1) pressure section and (3) scavenge sections.
Magnus fittings are made in house from 6061 aluminum and are anodized (in black) to provide scratch resistance. Their performance has been stress tested on track cars around the world and proven on World Record holders. They can be used for oil, gas, nitrous and to extreme temperatures. See our line of fittings that cover -AN, ORB, Plugs, Step Up and Step Down and “Y” fittings.
