Okay, I've seen the oil pickup tube option but just reviewed what it takes to replace it. It's a major bitch to change it out.

Now I did see something about a oil sump system. Not sure how that works or if it's even the same thing needed to help save the engine from oil starvation.

Are there any other options???

Without doing any modifications only thing would be to run 7 to 7.5 quarts of engine oil. And I think you can use a c6 oil pan but don't entirely remember. The more knowledgeable members will chime in

I want to fix the issue instead of running extra oil. Just want to know all the options for an AWD setup.

C6 pan only for 2WD.

PCM of NC pickup tube is your answer. Everything else is a bandaid. You can try just adding baffles to the pan but at that point you might as well put the tube in because it's already torn apart.

I don't want to take apart the whole front end for a stupid little tube!
Are the accusump kits not working?

Dropping that stupid AWD pan is like 12 hours of serious disassembly. That sucks balls!

Stupid little tube is cheaper than a stupid little engine.

Why won't the accusump system work?
