D8 GTO oil circulation system

Oil supply

Since high longitudinal and transverse acceleration forces are to be expected in a sports engine of this kind, the oil supply has to function reliably even in extreme conditions. For this reason, the engine has a relatively high oil capacity (initial fill: 7 litres). Secondly, the oil pump intake line is fitted in such a way as to provide protection against air induction under high vehicle dynamics.

Oil circulation system

The oil pressure (raw oil) produced by the oil pump is initially circulated through the oil filter module and then through the oil cooler. The clean oil now flows along oilways to the lubrication points. The oil filter and the oil cooler are component parts of the plastic oil module. Non-return valves for the cylinder head and cylinder block, as well as a cooler bypass valve, are integrated in the oil module.
