I am interested to know this as well. I thought traditionally, one of the big advantage of dry sump system is they allow the engine to be mounted as low as possible for lower center of gravity. But I don't see the dry sump system for our engine doing that. It actually move the 9 Liter of oil to a higher point (raise the center of gravity). Isn't that counter productive? Or the dry sump system comes with new engine and transmission mount/bushings that lower the engine also? Does other know?
