From drag strips to circle tracks to road courses and dry lakes, successful racing teams are winning with the best kept secret in motorsports: Titan's gerotor driven oil pumps for wet or dry sump applications. While it's true that Titan oil pumps initially gained fame for lubricating Top Fuel Dragsters and AA/Funny Cars, we now offer dual feed oil pumps for every racing engine and budget. Our billet aluminum, Professional series wet sump pumps provide "crankshaft insurance" to all types of pro cars, from fuel dragsters and door slammers to sprinters and road racers. Why settle for the obsolete, passenger car technology of spur gears? Why suffer the extra expense, frontal weight, hassle and leaks of dry sump tank and lines? Now, you can simply bolt in a quality wet-sump system and forget about it?
The finest dry sump pump ever designed for late Hemi type oiling systems is also manufactured by Titan. Ideally suited to Funny Cars, Pro Modifieds and other full-bodied vehicles with limited ground clearance, this two-stage design has gradually evolved during more than a decade of development by Chuck and Del Worsham, two of Titan's oldest customers. If this oil pump wasn't the best thing that's ever happened to the Worsham's main bearings, you know that they wouldn't be running it exclusively on all their fuel Funny Cars!
With the advent of our economical Sportsman pump for GM and Ford engines, even the lowest-buck racer finally has an alternative to cavitating stock type pumps and their failure prone external pickups. (Spur gear oil pumps were designed for passenger cars and that's exactly where they belong!] Professional and Sportsman wet sump models share our proven gerotor pumping system. Titan's high volume, anti-cavitation design is super smooth to 12,000 plus rpm! A unique combination of modular designs, interchangeable housings and gear sizes enable us to provide virtually any volume desired. Either one or two pumping segments are available in professional models, depending on the volume of oil required. Most Pro pumps include a large, integral pickup with more than 13 square inches of screen area. (The exceptions are late Chryslers and other remote pickup applications.) Every pump is black hard anodized, and all Titan pumps are fully rebuildable too! All Titan models utilize a unique, adjustable pressure relief that allows you to select virtually any pressure setting from 50 psi to more than 1 00 psi. [Higher spring rates are available for even more pressure, where warranted). Our technicians individually bench test all pumps for volume and pressure. We preset the pressure of your pump to suit your specific application.
Titan's wet sump pumps bolt right into the stock oil pump locations of popular GM, Ford, and Chrysler V8s, including early and late Hemis. All pumps are packaged complete with Grade-8 [or higher] mounting hardware. GM models include a large, integral pickup assembly that cannot crack or fall off. Correct length drive shafts are provided for all applications. Titan's tool steel shafts combine super strong, 5/ 16-inch hex lower drive with a stock style upper drive. If you want to improv on the weak tang drive in your GM/Chevy, Titan Speed has come up with a premium distributor drive gear [patent pending). It has a 5/16 hex broached in the bottom, so you must remove the "tiny tang" from the bottom of your distributor. They are available in either stock diameter (.491) or aftermarket diameter (.500). These gears are made in the U.S.A. from an aerospace brass alloy. Hex drive shafts are also available in any length. The GM Hex-Hex Drive is available as an option with our Professional and Sportsman Series Pumps.
Some pans may require modifications to accept Titan's larger than stock pump housings. The size of our pump bodies is dictated by the gerotor pumping segments, which are larger in diameter than the GM type spur gears found inside our competitors' smaller housings. First time customers typically order a brand-new aluminum pan that's custom built to accommodate our oil pump. Jeff Johnston's Billet Fabrication has designed -an entire line of aluminum pans around wet-sump Titan pumps. Both one- and two-piece models are available, with or without exclusive Baffle Balls. Boasting billet rails and seal sections as standard equipment, these precision-built oil pans are available directly from Billet Fabrication for any racing or street engine, chassis design and sump style.
