I'm posting this up to help them out since they are pretty busy.
Hey Guys,

Here at IR Performance, we have an exciting announcement to make-- we are running an introductory Group Buy on our newest performance product for the Rotary Community:

The IRP Stainless Steel Oil Filler Neck!

Catering to the single turbo owners and road race/track junkies, this product has the following features: I am planning on mine with BNR sequential twins)




-All 304 Stainless Steel construction
-Butt welded fittings and neck, TIG welded
-Choice between dual 6 ports or a single 10 port to run to catch can and/or compressor inlet (straight thread o-ring seal)
-Custom machined flange that works as a baffle while not restricting filling
-Made in the U.S.A. by rotary enthusiasts
-Works with stock and aftermarket oil caps
-Fits with GZ/Excessive LIM as well as stock
-No modifications needed, bolt on and go
-Includes sealing o-ring and mounting hardware
-Retail price is set at $245, but right now we are offering this product at $195 plus shipping
-Custom machined threaded cap piece, butt weld, awesome looking in my humble opinion.
-custom machined dual -6 port pieces, which look awesome in my totally unbiased opinion, if you choose that over the single -10 port option.

To secure your spot in this Group Buy, paypal a deposit of $100 to IRPerformance@live.com. Remember to include your forum name (and which forum) and shipping information. We expect orders to go out within 3 to 4 weeks.

To suit your specific application you are responsible for sourcing your own AN fittings. We can arrange to have the oil filler necks powder or ceramic coated on a case by case basis as well.

More pictures and details to follow




I hate to say it, because I (monkman33 on this opinion) don't like to bash on other people's products. The flange fitment of my previous setup was not ideal. There was a lot of work done to find the proper o ring that would assure a proper seal. my previous oil necks (yes, plural, hence why I decided to take on this endeavor) did not meet my expectations as far as fitment and line up is concerned. There was a lot of time spent and prototyping spent on just the flange. The oem oil fill flange is not centered with the mounting bolts. And, to make it really fun, there is a variance between 93 and 95 oil flanges, as far as hardware spacing goes, by more than a 1/10th of an inch... which is significant in the machining world. :rant: This explains the slotted design on one end of some of the other necks in the past. However, having only one end slotted meant that some lined up well, while others lined up poorly. These issues have all been addressed with this unit.

That was fast! Thanks! Just so everyone knows, I am still making these and my initial costs at running only 10-15 units would have been over what IRP is offering them at right now. They backed this project so we could do a much larger quantity (of which an unemployed man like me could not afford to front) to bring the costs down.

The flanges are custom
The neck piece is custom
The dual port pieces are custom
The single -10 ports are custom.

The pipe and 90 degree fittings are the only part that we didn't make. (and the O-ring and bolts too of course)

So basically, this is as far from off the shelf as a piece can get. I am very happy with how they turned out.

Ok, quick update time. It's been crazy with Thanksgiving and all.

So there is going to have to be a choice made for those wanting the single -10 fitting. The front lifting eye is in the way and will need to be removed, and the -10 port will be facing forward. There is just no other good way to put a -10 fitting in there without requiring different modifications.

Otherwise, the dual port will be facing inwards as per the original pictures. and not require removal of the front lifting eye. I will be contacting everyone who has the single -10 selected to assure they know that this piece will require the lifting eye removed.

Oh, and pending those responses, there should be more fitment pics coming soon. I am sure everyone is wanting to get their hands on one as soon as possible.

Final pieces for fitment are on their way to IRP. Once they are blessed off, then final production and shipping for those involved in the group buy begins.

Progress! Final production is almost commencing. Just have to finalize fitment with different lower and elbow combinations.

Dual -6 with stock lower:

http://www.rotarycarclub.com/rotary_forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=14245&stc=1&d=1387002720


These ended up being a complete redesign from what is out there. Jut waiting on final fit checks with various lower/elbow combinations to determine if there will need to be two separate units for the stock lower and for the Xcessive lower.

Hope you guys like them! Final production should be starting soon!!!

is the oil neck that important ? mine has a hairline crack

Monkman33

It's not a crazy essential piece. (except when it comes to filling your oil)

The primary reason for these is to have a blot on solution for use with the Xcessive lower intake manifold. I have seen some ugly examples of burnt/melted and bent stock filler necks to accommodate the movement of the upper when using the Xcessive lower. Also, these have a baffle (not an extreme one, but it will help) built in to help prevent oil from travelling up the filler neck on long right hand sweepers. Combine this baffled filler neck with an opposite side oil-pan area vent, and it should completely solve the problem.


The secondary reason for these is to offer a nice looking solution to the guys that want to run -an lines for vents and catch cans, (or use -6 to hose barb adapter fittings, totally an option)

The third reason: It looks cool.

As for the lines connecting to it, that would need to be figured out on an individual basis. There is a lot of information out there as to what types of setups work best for what goals.

Personally, I will be running the dual -6 with the bottom port being ran to a vent line attached to the rear turbo oil drain port to vent the curb side of the engine (the filler neck vents the road side) That way, air pressure has a route out no matter which way the oil is sloshing during a turn. The top vent will be routed to a catch can.

Sweet, I'll be rebuilding my 12a. Gonna port an polish it an add a four port injection system with a computer that will run off the distributor. Trying to get the 1400 bucks is the only hard part, got all the parts located an i have a friend. Gonna consider a different oil filler because unless i run a hood scoop the upper part of the injection system wont fit under the hood unless turned sideways. the thing looks draft style. throttle body at the head and injectors down low. im still figuring things out.

These ones are pretty specific to the FD. The baffle is oriented to match the flange of the oil filler neck. So the only way for these to work for the 12a is if your flange falls in the same bolt pattern range and has the same orientation. if you pm me, we can work out the details. Or get a hold of me when the time comes.

Still if it needs to be done i will ask this can i use the desighn to make my own ? an a question on oil cooling. was thinking of taking the beehive off and doing a chevy s10 style 4x4 after market oil cooler with a inline filter. got most of the desighn figured out, but not sure how much mass an cooling these things can take, it would only add anothe 3/4ths of a quart a quart at most. it would sit with my eventual electric fan and inter cooler set up i am plotting out.

I can't guarantee that the flange angle would match up with anything other than the 13b-rew oil flanges (which have their own variances between years). As for increasing oil capacity, I know the Xsessive oil pan adds about a quart to capacity, and larger dual oil coolers that are commonly run on FDs also add to the total capacity.

Two posts down, there is a picture of the baffle angle that I am talking about.
