Hi guys I have seen a recent post asking about levels with a baffle.

But, with an extended sump (i have a RK extended sump) the car obviously should take more oil. No?

If it takes more oil, is this still to the levels as per dipstick?

Just a tad confused with this and Ron seemed to think he oer filled it too... Yet wasnt certain.

Much appreciated

Regardless of how big the sump is, the oil level is the oil level. The dipstick denotes the lowest the point the oil level should be in regards to the crank.

Min level is to make sure the pickup stays submerged and doesn't just hoover air up from the sump. Max level is to prevent excessive crank windage.

If your extended sump uses a different pickup level then the minimum mark loses accuracy. Although if the new pickup sits lower than the old one then the low mark is now safer than it used to be :) if the new pickup sits higher than the old one then you might want to worry!
