I have these listed on my other parts for sale thread, but I wanted to shed some experience on this part.

Both of our engines had previously used the S1 style oil pick-up tube. At a race in Vegas last New Years, we had low oil pressure on the engine but decided to continue in the race because it was for the championship. After the race, we torn the engine down and determined that the oil pick-up tube had cracked and the sump at the bottom had come off and got chewed up in the engine. Fortunately, the screen got sucked up into the oil pick-up on the block and prevented the bits from getting sucked into the engine. Surprisingly, both the oil pump and the main bearings were all deemed to be good.

After this incident, we replaced the oil pick-up in both engines with the S2 style. This upgraded part used a cast aluminum brace that attached in two locations. This is a much improved design and can be swapped in the engine even it is still installed in the car.

Anyway, this is my two cents. I have two of these pick-ups available. Asking $100 plus shipping for each.
