Technical Information / Consulting


From racers, car owners to engine builders, to those with NO knowledge about DRY SUMP SYSTEMS and racing engine fluid dynamics, you can now have the undivided attention of one of the few TRUE Dry Sump system experts in the world.

Gary Armstrong Consulting

Gary Armstrong has a degree in Automotive and Mechanical Engineering, inventor of 10 US Patents on Dry Sump components as well as over 43 years owning and running ARE with enormous amounts of knowledge in racing engines. Designing and manufacturing Dry Sump Systems for engines of all types led to contracts and orders from General Motors, Nissan, Toyota, Honda HPD, Hennessey, GM Racing, Katech, Spyker, TRD, Swift, Deutz, Kubota, Cosworth, Ford, Mitsubishi, BMW and many more. We also are proud suppliers of our Dry Sump components to professional engine builders around the world such as, Katech, Mast Motorsports, Hendricks Motorsports, Zomer Racing Engines, TRD, Quicksilver, McLaren Engines, Goodwin Competition, Lingenfelter, Dallas Performance, and many more.

We are also distributors for most if not all of what could be thought of as “our competitors” other Dry Sump and related components. I am happy to include any non-ARE components in our conversation too. You will get an unbiased evaluation of your needs, and an actual quotation on our recommendations. No pressure, no return phone calls unless requested. Just solid and valuable advise. Same time explanations of technical data and drawings on the web sites, products and schematics.

My honest to God goal is to help you get the best and most out of your racing engine, starting with keeping your big investment and “rather important” race engine alive! You will get facts based on the science and physics of dry sump technology as well as years experience and testing, NOT something your neighbor read in a racing magazine, or some half right plan. The Dry Sump System is truly a “System” and every component must be designed and selected to be the right size / flow rate / volume etc to allow the system to work at its best and in concert. Included is also any information on the Spintric air / oil separator.

Call or e-mail to make an appointment. Rates as follows:

15 minutes – $50.00

30 minutes – $80.00

1 hour – $150.00

Plus….. If you order an ARE system or over $2,000.00 worth of ARE products in the 6 months time following, we will deduct 50% of the consulting charge from your purchase. We are not doing this to make money, rather to allow questions to be answered for those needing help without cutting short our conversation due to work.

Thank you.
