LS Engine Oil Pump Pickup Tube Brace / Clamp

[Part # EGM-500]

$24.00
Qty:

Improve the reliability and performance of your LS oiling system with this simple brace!

The factory LS engine oil pickup tube is only secured by a single screw, which can result in a poor O-ring seal and lead to oil pressure drops and oil starvation. Improved Racing's billet aluminum brace improves the pickup tube O-ring seal by ensuring equal clamping force is exerted to both sides of the oil pickup tube flange.

This brace uses the unused extra screw hole in the oil pump and is 100% bolt-on. Coupled with high-strength steel flange screws, it will keep your pickup tube in place and leak-free lap after lap.

Features & Benefits

  • Machined from lightweight 6061-T6 aluminum, black anodized and laser-marked
  • Distributes even clamping force around pickup tube flange by acting as an extension of the flange
  • High-strength grade 8.8 M6 flange screws, zinc coated
  • Lifetime Warranty
Includes
  • Improved Racing EGM-500 - LS engine oil pump pickup tube brace / clamp & hardware

Applications
  • GM Gen III & IV LS family engines, wet-sump only
  • DOES NOT fit GM pickup tube, part # 12608593, most pickup tubes with welded flanges or pickup tubes with 2 screw holes.

Another great product from Improved Racing. I installed it on my LS1 build for my C5 Corvette. I like the added confidence of knowing the pickup tube is probably seated to the oil pump and won't develop any leaks. The clearance under the neck of the pickup tube is tight. You'll need to get the bolt and clamp into position before you seat the pickup tube into the oil pump. Get the bolt started and as you tighten it, you can then finish seating the pick up tube. In the end it fits very well. And I like that they include two bolts.

Agree with the cheap insurance. I had this excellent product installed in my GPI forged/stroked LSA build -- another quality product from Improved Racing -- they are my goto for outstanding racing upgrades!

This is cheap insurance and peace of mind for your oil pickup tube. The part is well made and does the job. With all that we spend on our cars, this is a no brainer.

And if you do not already know, Improved Racing makes and sells top quality parts. They could have easily skipped any coating on this product as it would likely never corrode inside the oiling system. But, they don't cut corners. That is refreshing.
