This is a closed loop 5w20 oil, from the oil pump mounted on the left down tube, kinda low and out of the way (the pump is approx. 1.25" diameter x 4" tall), it will pump the oil up a coiled copper, like a stil in the olden days, it will act as a cooler coil, and it will enter the turbo housing at the top by the chrome guage you see, thats an oil pressure guage, it is then forced through the bearings , (can see the nipple on the bottom of turbo, its kinda big, but the return line needs to be bigger to hold the volume of oil needed) and is sucked by the same pumps return line and the oil goes round and round, actually. very little is pushed through at a time, the pumps expensive cost is because it is a magnetic drive, the will only deliver 5-7 psi maximum, never dead heading and overheating the oil.

So are you going to leave the primary chain in as well? I've seen a rebuilt Shovelhead, where he changed out the primary chain with a belt. Was a very strange arrangement.

actually, since I turned the turboneum 5000 backwards, it doesnt get to hot.
I have seen some turned the other way, I'll bet thats crazy heat with the exhaust housing and huge pipe radiating right there.

Would wrapping the pipes with exhaust tape be a detrement to performance?
Cause I think exhaust tape on choppers is near a must(looks nice though Scoot!)

Tim,
I've got some black wrap and clamps you can HAVE if you want them.

^^Hard to beat that price right there!

Does he have to guess closest to the acutal retail price without going over?
(sorry, I watched that Bob Barker special last night).

I had em wrapped before, I appreciate the offer Patrick, but I'm gonna run em naked this time, if it makes that much of a difference, I'll re-wrap em again. I still have the stuff and its silver to match already.
as to the original posted question,
pipe wrap holds heat in, this heat increases velocity in the pipes, so basically it does AID in performance, just whether its really measureable or noticeable in our real world application is debateable.
One thing it does do is hold heat in for rider comfort, last time I ran this set up, they were wrapped and I really had zero heat issues, we will compare and see how it is w/o.
