Does anybody have this hooked up in there VR6 motor I was told by a highly reputable machine shop that is a great investment for the VR6 because of the limited space and pressure that the oil system on a stock VR6 has? any comment are greatly appreciated

Re: Oil Accusump kit? (benzivr6)

Working on it...very limited space in a Corrado. But it doesn't help I have the 3 quart version.

It does two things...
1: Pressurizes the oil system before start up.
2: Provides oil pressure in the event you suck air into the pump. (During hard cornering for example).

I guess you could call it that, more like preventing metal from touching metal at start up. "Hard start" to me is difficulty in starting, which this would have no influence on.
Yeah, my car is all good for cornering.

3 qt, Accusump kit with electric valve is about $300 with clamps. Then you need hose and fittings as well as a place to input/output the oil.
