When you tear down your motor here are some options. Increasing the drain back holes in the heads. Another option is adding exterior bungs to the heads which are internally tapered like a funnel (in line with the rocker surface of the head) that drains back to the pan via 1/8 NPT AN 6 hoses. Drilling the lifter guides with drainback holes. The factory windage tray holes can also get bored over to half inch. Ported ls6 pump wouldn't hurt. Accusumps are another option but are typically late delivering once the pressure dips.

I went there, but it said sign in. I don't have an account. I told my wife and she "liked" it. She also attached it to her page some how and her son will see it. He is a side by side nut, but he will like it and probably all his friends. I'm not very connected, but you should get lots of likes out of it. LOL.
