Default New product that will help keep unfiltered oil from going through your LT1/LT4!

SacCityCorvette's GEN 5 LT1 / LT4 Precision Fit Billet Barbell Stops Unfiltered Oil & Increases Oil Flow! Here's why this Barbell only makes sense!

The oil galley oil diverter Barbell in your Gen 5 LT1/LT4 based engine is something that is over looked. And yet it serves a very important mission of directing oil to the oil filter.
If oil leaks pass the Barbell it will go unfiltered directly to the Cam Bearing, Lifters, Crank and Rod Bearings.
The factory Barbell is approximately .010” to loose so particles as big as 250 microns can leak passed the factory Barbell. Your oil filter will filter out approximately 25 Microns
depending on the brand of filter. Our 6061 Aluminum Precision Billet Barbell fits with approximately .001” clearance which will let only about 20-25 Microns pass by, that is the same as the filter.

Another important part is the shaft of the Barbell. The oil has to flow around it to get through to the oil port. Our Billet Barbell has a 30% smaller shaft for much less flow restriction.

We have also added a 1/4-20 threaded hole in the end of our Barbell for easy removal. Just screw a 1/4-20 bolt in and pull the barbell out. No more digging and prying to get the factory one out.

Better engine protection from much less and smaller particles bypassing, smaller less restrictive shaft for better oil flow, replaceable High Temperature Viton O ring and for ease of service a threaded 1/4-20 hole.
Why would you ever put the plastic factory Barbell back in your expensive Gen 5 LT1/LT4 engine and let unfiltered oil in?

If your doing the rear main seal, its a good time to toss the loose factory oil diverter/barbell and install one of our Precision fit billet barbells and start keeping unfiltered oil out of the bearings.
