    Default Zoomies NA Plus a RULE infraction?

    Check out pic, i took a screen shot of the new Lucas Oil video...advertising for Wheatland race, Link is below, pic at about 5 seconds.

    So here are Zoomies on a NA n20 Pro Mod, EVAC's are in Zoomies, which I thought was a rule violation? I will re-educate myself by read rules again, if I am wrong I will be pissed that I spent almost three hundo on AN bullshit and a catch can.

    Dont know who's boat it is

    I think you need to re read those rules real slow.
    Zoomies work with N2O. Again, camshaft camshaft camshaft.
    Off the bottle, that thing is giving up a ton to anything with the same engine, with a different camshaft and headers

    Lucas allows pan evac. They have to have oil separating breathers on them. I've been running them for 2 years now. I didn't think they would do much good in one tube on each side of a NA engine. I put a vacuum gage on mine, and got 5" on the gage. Don't know if I got more power, but the oil leaks are gone. The puke didn't work at all......Tim

    Here is the rule,

    8.13 Crankcase Catch System

    All boats must have some type of catch can or vacuum
    recovery system to reserve any blow- by fluids that may
    vent out of the engine crankcase, and prevent any oil/fuel
    from entering the water. If the system goes to the
    headers, it must employ an oil separating device.

    I could really care less about the above boat not have correct system to pass tech, heck I would do it too, if I thought I could get away with it,
    Other than I went out of my way abiding by a rule.

    GN to clarify I was just stirring up the BS about the zoomies deal, if someone else is loosing power or gaining power, i dont care. RTs and ETs get WINS

    Yeah that's a tough rule to follow along with

    Hey LED, those little thingies on the valve covers the lines are hooked to, THOSE ARE OIL SEPERATORS

    I done the same thing LED

    Just haven't put the tank on yet. I'd much rather run the evac to the headers.

    I can't say for sure, but I would say the "breathers in the valve covers of that thing are the Mopar type and will not allow heavy amount of oil to leave.
    I think the rule is to keep you from just using a AN fitting in the valve cover and nothing else.



    You can also run the valve cover line to a tank and from the tank to the headers. If its good enough for NHRA ProMod type cars, I think it would be good enough for Lucas.
    Moroso sells a number of different tanks, as does Star Vacuum pumps

    Been using that style breather for years, Mr. gasket and Moroso both have chrome versions. Seal the crimped seam on the chrome jobbies, or they will leak at the seam. Early 70's Mopar breathers from the parts store. I run the lines up to the scoop pan, stay dry as can be.

    Originally I had part store Mr. Gasket breathers with exit fittings ( as GN states Oil Separators) clear hose to the evac on the headers, mostly moisture with a lil oil, when I went to wheatland I pulled the hose, passed tech which I thought it was due to no hose, so I had bungs welded in the covers and started spending

    Mike...Don't put the tank on or a pan/evac system .Old school..I would run a Moroso Vacuum pump with a relief valve in the valve cover set at 15 inches vacuum max.

    It all depends on who you are. Not bashing... but I have had the "oil separator" breathers in my valve covers for years and years. When the puke tank rule came about I changed absolutely NOTHING. Never a word.
    Not that I am someone.... but I was never asked about it.
    So, I believe it is not a huge deal.
