OK... are the m20 and m50 engines a dry sump system? Ive never been able to get any articles if they are or not but from the looks of the set up of my engine it looks like a dry sump. But on the e36 the setup looks a lot different but still similar to a dry sump. If it is a dry sump setup why did they put it in such an ineffecient place? It could be a lot smaller, lower, and more to the front for better wieght distribution and lower center of gravity. Anyone know?
