Default Who Offers A "Plug-n-Play" Style Dry Sump Conversion Kit for the C5?



On an 800 WHP wet sump car (LS2 402 stroker), how much gain should be expected when going to a dry sump?

Are any kits offered for the C5? I know DRM is / was working on one, but it is a ways out from what I understand.

Plug and play? dont think so. Too much has to be done for a dry-sump system. ( New oil pan, two stage pump, tank, cooler, lines, etc )

However if and when you do go that route you will see far better oiling and oil cooling plus pick up several ponies.
