The pump for the big block Mopar is his latest oil pump to be released. It is designed with either single or dual line external pickup lines. One problem with Mopar oiling systems is the inherent restrictions inside the block in the oil pickup passages. The external hose(s) solves that problem and is a very common item on high horsepower Mopars. The Titan pump I ordered was a single line pickup with a #16AN hose size. I also opted for the remote oil filter cover plate so I can locate the oil filter out of the way. The pump can also be ordered with the standard spin-on oil filter plate. One of the unique features of the Titan Oil pump is the externally adjustable internal bypass pressure regulator. This regulator allows pressure to be set between 50 psi and 100 psi. The Titan engineers can preset the pressure for you as they wet flow every pump before they ship them.
Their geo-rotor design is available in single or dual design, depending
on the oil volume you need. Because Titan pumps bypass internally, the
volume of oil coming in the pickup tube (or hose) is virtually the same
as the volume of oil going to the main oil gallery. The geo-rotor design
eliminates cavitation and air bubbles that are generated by spur gear
pumps at race engine RPMs. This cavitation and resulting vibration can
have a detrimental effect on engine longevity as well as causing OEM-style
oil pumps to crack and break off. You can imagine the disastrous effects
that would have on an expensive race engine.
