Default Accusump Help

Hello, I need an accusump on my LS 3 525 crate engine. This is going on a track car.
I need some recommendations as far as the set up and which of the electric valves I should buy the 25 psi or the 40 psi?
Thanks for the help

I went with Canton 3quart on c5.

I have katech oil press. Spring for 10 pso over stock. It idles about 37-40 when oil is 240-250. So I went with the 40. Led starts coming on when hot and idling into pits, I usually get it turned off before then. I started with the 25, but would be concerned the oil save could be too late. I have seen it flicker on track with the 40, until I found the oil level it likes. It would depend what pressures you'll be running to pick the right switch. Improved racing has everything. The different switches can be bought separately if the first one doesn't work out.

Rx7Rob was super helpful with my installation. Here is the thread: https://www.corvetteforum.com/forums...-accusump.html

I have a Ron Davis radiator with an integrated oil cooler (right side of radiator) so I tapped into the return line rather than trying to squeeze something under the headers closer to the oil filter housing. If you are using the EPC valve, there is a good place to run the power wire through the driver side bulkhead just above the dead pedal. I used the 40 lb valve per Accusump recommendation. I wired in an LED so I can see when the valve opens and I get similar results as lbs90ZR. I can post some pictures if you want.
