Default Killer B Motorsport FA20 WRX Oil Pickup

Like many of our other products, this is a solution to a problem. I came across this many months ago, during turbo kit testing on our shop 2015 WRX. The engine had blown, but the violence was significantly more than just the bent rod we had hoped for. As you can see, debris went into the engine and made its way into the oil pump. Iím sure you can imagine the consequences of an instant oil pressure loss. A much more expensive repair!

Why had the oil pump filled with debris? The OEM pickup screen had failed. The OEM part had not prevented metal bits and chunks from entering the engine. At the time of failure, I had assumed this was just the kind of luck I had, but after hearing that other shops had similar experiences, we dug deeper.

The OEM pickup screen is crimped in a retainer and that assembly is spot welded into the pickup Ďcaní. There are a couple of flaws with this process. One is that the screen is creased where the retaining ring is crimped over it. The other is the spot weld process embrittles the screen. We pushed on the screen of new OEM pickups, and several popped wire strands, without a lot of effort.

Being known for making the best Subaru Performance Oiling Products money can buy, addressing this was right up our alley. Of course, our own spin of improvements, besides the obvious had to be made to assure set it and forget reliability that comes with our products. A means for improving performance was taken advantage of during the design process as well.

The obvious big change is the tube has no bend. No bend means no restriction, and even better coming from the OEM tube because it uses a more restrictive pinch bend. The ID of the tube has been increased, and so has the thickness. The angle of the tube points it directly at the inlet into the block. Like our EJ engine Ultimate Oil Pickup this one too uses a screen to match the OEM spec opening size of the mesh. Although, we use a higher strength screen material. The screen area has been increased over 31% which reduces the restriction and stress on the screen. Our screen is lightly pressed and welded into place assuring the wire does not gets stresses or heat damages. TIG welding throughout assures proper weld penetration and quality. The material is 4130 Alloy Steel CNC machined to further provide an increase in strength over the brazed stamped steel OEM version. The units have been pressure tested to 150psi over the face of the screen without issue.
If anyone has questions or would like to place an order, please feel free to contact us.

What made the engine fail? Items getting thru the oil screen into the engine, or another source. I just want to make sure I'm reading this right.

Thanks

Lots of power made it fail :P With the turbo kit making ~150whp over stock so we knew we were on borrowed time.

The cause of this failure was a bent rod, which lead to piston skirt failure and this bits getting sucked into the pickup, and pulled through the screen. This made the failure much worse than it could have been :/ I was going to just put a new OEM pickup in, but when I pushed on the screen and heard screen strands pop it made me design a new unit that would be much more durable, and at the same time, added some performance enhancing features
