Ever have an oil pump sprocket retaining nut back off and lose
oil pressure? How about shearing off the oil pump shaft with the
sprocket and nut still attached? Chances are you lost that engine.
We at VAC Motorsports hear this all the time, and it happens to the
most unsuspecting BMW enthusiast more than you might think.
This kit is very popular for a reason; it eliminates all failures
modes permanently while retaining serviceability. Some people
believe it is enough to weld the OEM bolt on, or use a special nut,
or safety wire. However, in these cases this does not
solve the shearing of the shaft (completely off!) and in some cases
can make things worse. This oil pump issue effects 100% stock
and modified motors and we get calls and emails with these failures
several times a month. An oil pan baffle is not enough, do NOT be
the victim this common failure! This kit is the best solution
on the planet addressing 100% of the issues. UPGRADE your oil pump
with a VAC Oil Pump Upgrade Kit and safeguard yourself against
silly yet extremely costly oil pump failures.
