I need another of your excellent scraper kits (Teflon) for our latest 928 race car which will be fitted with a 5.0 GT motor.
BTW this will be kit number 5 I think and we have not had a single (oil related) failure on any since fitting your scrapers, we also use minimal oil! This is also using the factory breather system without any catch tank and on my own race car max revs is set at 7500 rpm which I use all of!
We have received feedback and dyno testing indicated that the combined system below significantly improved the output of the stock engine from 4400 rpm and peaking over 3.5% at 7500 rpm.

The above SBC Teflon® bladed pattern was made after a plastic template was sent to the customer, adjusted and then returned to us.
"Got my scraper today, fits better than I could have imagined. Thanks for taking the time to make it perfect."

I thought you might like to hear of our latest success. On April 25th 2010 in Moses Lake, WA we set a new world speed record for a 1 ¼ mile course with our 2.3 Ford powered APBA Hydroplane using your triple Teflon scraper. The old record had stood for over 10 years!
Thank you for all your help!

Subject: Windage System for SRT-4
I felt it appropriate to share my initial results after
installing your Windage System for the SRT-4.
Congratulations Bill Edgeworth: current NHRA record holder for L/SA at -1.49 under the index !
2008 was our first season in APBA 2.5 stock hydroplanes, and we used your triple scraper setup in our 2.3 Liter Ford engine. We won the very first race we entered in Yelm Washington, ran second several times, won again in Pateros Washington, and finished the season 5th place in national points. Not bad for our first year, but we’re looking to improve about four positions in 2009!

Daniel Scott, owner of a 1996 Dodge Stratus with 206,000 miles on it installed our dual scraper for the 2.4 designed to work with engines with the balance shafts left in place. [Note: the system mentioned later on this page that was dyno tested for the 2.4 is used when the balance shafts are removed.] Daniel removed the pan and saw that an OEM gasket scraper from Dodge was already in place. He removed this and installed our dual scraper which has far more coverage and dual acceleration trap doors:
He wrote and said, "the crank scraper was the best mod for the 2.4 engine. There is a major and noticeable difference in mid range and high rpm. A must for any stratus owner looking to make a lot of power for a nice price; easy installation and a great hand crafted piece."
Again, it is worth noting that this change alone showed a major power difference on an engine with 206,000 miles on it.

I recently bought from you a scraper for my BMW 2002 Historic Race Car (M10 engine), fitted it last week, and competed with the car just last weekend.
How does an extra 600 rpm at the end of the main straights sound???
My lap times were consistently better by one second per lap, and over 3 races, of 5, 6, and 10 laps each, I posted 8 laps betted than my previous best.
Engine and oil temperatures were lower than before (same ambient conditions).
The engine feels like it has been fitted with a lightweight flywheel etc etc...
All I can say, is THANKYOU !!!!!!!!!!!!! ...
You may well get some orders from fellow 2002 racers here in Australia.
You made a Teflon® crank scraper for my Datsun Spl-311. What a difference.

I installed my 944 Turbo Windage tray/Teflon crank scraper and I’m happy to report my oil pressure is consistently 1 bar higher than previously. Normally after working the engine at sustained high rpms and coming back down to idle I would see the gauge fluctuating above and below the 2 bar line. Now under the same driving conditions using the exact same oil, I never see below 3 bar at idle. I just thought I’d share my experience with your product.
