I'd like it, but if it makes nearly no difference at all then it's not worth the effort

I cannot say for definite that there is any performance gain, or flip side, reduction in loss, but what seems logical to me is if you can reduce the amount of oil which is being thrown up into the crank from the transmission and manage the oil which is being returned to the sump from the crank and oil pressure relief valve there must be some form of benefit, even if it's just one of making the oil work in the places it's needed rather than getting thrown around unnecessarily.
And to make comments about parts which are not directly fed by oil galleries... why don't all engines which don't have a gearbox in the sump, pretty much every engine except the transverse A series (and some E series ) have some method of 'throwing' oil up from the sump into the crank case.... especially when you consider the A series engine is also used in an inline configuration with a standard sump pan in the midget, moggie minor and plenty of other BMC/Leyland and Austin vehicles.

I believe there's more to these mods than any interaction with oil in the sump will account for.

what i meant was that there is now no need to blade the crank! you blade a crank to help the crank rotate through the oil thats being chucked around. with this windage tray fitted, there is no oil being thrown around, so there is no need for blading! therefore the crank mods can be focussed on making it perform better ie better counterweighting etc

I dont think, these days many race engine builders even.do it anymore, probably Because they're dry-sump

Took longer to actually clean it afterwards....
And it was nothing that was going to get used by me.... see I have found a use for auto blocks ! lol
