    a400 group B 2.4 rebuild

    Hi All

    I am currently rebuilding a 2.4 A400 group B spec rally car engine

    the customer wants to change from original dry sump to a wet sump
    i have contacted Gerent and they have an upgraded casing and gears etc but wont supply unless complete engine is purchased
    they informed me the std oil pipe is to small and run a double pick up pipe system

    Risse do upgraded gears and extension housing for normal pump front casing and will supply sump

    can anyone tell me if Risse is a good upgrade kit or is there anyone else who can supply or advise on the best options

    great website by the way

    Rule of thumb
    10 psi per thousand rpm
    Max out at 85 psi @ 10K rpm

    Risse is a very reputable supplier for rallye and racing Opel engine parts. Thumbs up for them!
