The Audi D8 AGU and E-gas models (1999- 2010) without dry sump can suffer from ‘oil-shake’ during cornering, braking or hard acceleration. During this momentum, the oil intake from the oil sump into the oil pump can be pumping air without oil. This can potentially harm your engine when under load.
BMW was the first manufacturer to develop an engine sump for the M3 to prevent this, utilising smaller compartments with valves. This can be easily modified in the same way for your D8 Audi. Below is a picture of a modified Audi D8 engine sump equipped with rubber one-way valves. When interested? Mail us.
