Product Details
 
After several years of racing with these engines, M50, M52, S50, S52us, we found that the harsh vibration and harmonics due to constant high revving and stiffer engine and transmission mounts often lead to cracking the oil pickup tube.The stock unmodified oil pump pickup tube can begin to develop cracks at the end of the suction tube allowing the oil pump to suck in air creating an instant loss of oil pressure! We all know how devastating and catastrophic loosing oil pressure can be, especially in race conditions, so we developed this reinforcement service which helps prevent these sort of issues.

This is a service item which requires either a core exchange or sending in your tube to be reinforced. We also recommend replacing the pickup tube gasket as the same time, which is sold separately.

Core Options
  • Without Core Exchange: Select this option if you do not have an eligible core that is in good shape, free of damage or cracks.
  • I will send in my tube to be reinforced: You send in your tube to Achilles Motorsports and as long as it is in good shape, free of damage or cracks we will reinforce it and send it back to you. (Typically a 2-3 Day Turnaround Once Tube Is Received)
  • I Will Pay the Core Charge and Return My Tube for a Refund: We send you a reinforced pickup tube and you return your tube for a core as long as it is in good shape, free of damage or cracks. (Allows the least amount of downtime for your car)

Tech Tips
  • At the same time, while the oil pan is removed we HIGHLY RECOMMEND upgrading your factory oil pump with our Achilles Motorsport Upgraded Oil Pump. After witnessing several instances with sheered off oil pump shafts or the oil pump nut coming loose resulting in instant loss of oil pressure we decided to come up with a solution - Don't let it happen to you!
  • We also recommend installing our Achilles Motorsports Oil Pan Baffle. The factory BMW oil pan doesn't do a very good job of keeping oil accumulated around the oil pick up tube in high g-force situations. This oil pan baffle design incorporates dual door traps to keep oil around the pickup tube and minimizing sloshing of the oil inside the oil pan. It will keep the oil accumulated around the oil pump pickup tube eliminating the costly loss of oil pressure and potential damage to other vital engine parts commonly caused by the high g-forces generated by hard acceleration, braking and high speed cornering.

Pick up tube gasket May 19, 2015
Reviewer: PJ McGarvey from Ambler, PA United States  
A quick reference on which way the pickup tube gasket goes would be helpful, the Bentley said one way (tabs facing the pickup opening) which would not fit my car, but the gasket had tabs on it that appeared to only allow it to install in one direction so that's what I did.

Great advice - Great product! March 24, 2015
Reviewer: Curt Anderson from Stanton, CA United States  
Easy to install and seems like a very strong upgrade to this crucial part of an M3's oiling system.
