To Baffle Or Not To Baffle

Recommended Posts

That is the question, is it really necessary to use a sump baffle plate on the xe in a manta?

not really to be honest. Its not really a sump baffle its a windage tray, it removes excess oil clinging to the crankshaft and stops it splashing back onto the crank. This was far more of a problem with the front drive sump than the manta sump.

 

it's pretty difficult to get oil surge with a manta sump and correct oil level
