2002 996 oil separator issue


Vehicle Information: Model: 996; Year: 2002; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 30,000;

I wrote in April about this issue and that I had installed a baffled oil pan from Suncoast Motors to try to solve this issue. I also have PSS10's and Sport Cups installed. Here is an update to that submission:I have driven at Blackhawk and Road America in the last three weeks with 4 hours of track time at Blackhawk and 11 hours at Road America. I burned less than half a quart of oil in this time and I never experienced any smoke while driving or at startup. On track, oil pressure remained consistent lap to lap.Whether or not this is the only fix or best fix, it seems to have eliminated this issue with my car. It was also fairly reasonably priced at about $500 ($300 for parts, $200 for labor).Also, a 996 in my group was using the 1/2-quart low "fix" and his car belched smoke several times on starting.
