    The first I heard of this modification was from T-Man Performance about six months ago. I suspect that Feuling have just improved on TR's original design. This is to help with the excessive crankcase pressure on the M8's - not sumping which is yet another issue that they have due to loose piston oiler jets combined with poor oil pump design.

    My thoughts? Just another plaster to stick onto a fundamentally flawed engine design that was released to the public before it was ready ...

    When the hell are these once respected companies gonna realise that outsourcing production to some third world shithole, is simply the wrong thing to do...?

    But then look at the MoCo: they've been doing it for decades!
