2002 996 oil separator issue


Vehicle Information: Model: 996; Year: 2002; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 28,000;

I have read several submittals about this issue and I know two PCA members in the Chicago Region that have experienced this same smoking problem with their 996's on the track. One of them even starved the engine and scored the cylinder walls.I recently installed PSS10's and Sport Cups in preparation for track season. Along with this I have installed a modified oil pan from Suncoast Motors that is baffled - there is a picture of the pan on their website. They claim this will help/eliminate this issue. My first track event of the season is May 7 at Blackhawk and then May 23-25 at Road America - apparently at the carousel, if this problem is going to occur it will occur there.Have you heard of or has anyone else tried this oil pan mod?
