HPOP spacer

I see RiffRaff has an HPOP reservoir spacer to increase the capacity of a stock or modded hpop.

Does anyone have any experience with this, and is it a worthwhile upgrade to a stock hpop?

Is it a possible substitute for a T500 with an injector in the 160/80 to 180/100 range?

I've had one for quite some time. It does not help maintain pressure as much as it makes sure the HPOP has all the oil it needs...

How do I know if my hpop has all the oil I need? It seems to keep up ok in all but the hot tune I have.

For $200 I don't want to throw it on there just to see, when that money could be going towards a honey badger or something down the road.

Cummon guys, I'm trying to get some interesting conversation going over here. The org has been a snooze fest lately

It is mainly setup for the twin pump setup that way both pumps get what they need. It relocates where the rear pump sucks oil from. Right now without the spacer it pulls it from the top of the reservoir.

Either way even for a stock/modded pump it isn't going to hurt anything running it. But I doubt you would notice a difference. You would have to watch to see if your LPOP is actually keeping up. Pressure gauge or if you can actually see your needle on your dummy gage dropping when you step on it.

I can't imagine the dummy gauge dropping at all when you step on it due to the raise in RPM.

I guess this part is reserved for the big boys or posers with too much money. Haha

LOL... Its a nice piece, but without having dual pumps or wanting an easy place to get oil for a twin turbo set up I dont see it being needed.

It also allows the guys without filters to run the filters (OBS and E99 guys do not have a HPO filter, its just a screen but its still a filter)...

This includes me with my OBS motor...

Well, if you are running dual pumps and you do see the gage move then you got a problem...LOL

It is a nice piece and like Joe says it is great upgrade for the OBS guys so they can add a filter. Plus there are also ports to add things for gages and such.

I do think you may have to get rid of the stock fuel bowl to run it.

Money better spent would be a Melling M208 lpop. Its high volume to keep the reservoir full.
