CASTLE HEAD OIL PICK UP EXTENSION
Our Castle head oil pick up adapters are the perfect addition for use with the genuine Subaru and FUJI Racing oil pick up pipes.
The purpose of the castle head adapter is to lower the pick up point of oil in the sump pan, helping to reduce the possibility of the pick up pipe "running dry" under hard or prolonged cornering.
With the Subaru EJ engines being horizontally opposed, oil has a tendency to escape out of the oil sump pan and run into the cylinder heads under prolonged or sharp cornering, therefore it's vital to improve the oil pick up system to help mitigate oil starvation risks.
In addition our castle adapters also protect against oil starvation due to a damaged sump. Occurring mostly in rally vehicles, should the sump obtain damage from a heavy landing the base can flatten which can press the inside surface against the mouth of the OEM pick up pipe. In turn this limits the volume of oil the pick up pipe can pull from the base of the sump which can then lead to devastating engine failure.
The castellation shape visible on our adapter is produced from steel and encased in rubber and can reduce in size as much as an inch, whilst still allowing adequate oil flow through the castle openings.
COST RRP: £17.49 (£20.99 Inc VAT)
The FUJI castle adapter will both EJ20 and EJ25 OEM pick up pipes and can be installed quickly and easily once the sump is removed.
The adapter pushes over the ridge of the standard pick up pipe (or FUJI pick up pipe) and is then lock wired in place to ensure it will not move from its desired position.
You will need lock wire and pliers to help with the installation, however we advise purchasing lock wire pliers for the best possible pressure on the wire band.
Suitable for the following engines:
• EJ20 / EJ22 / EJ25 Engines - PART NUMBER: FREN129
