A proper dry sump system is very involved to package in a daily driver. It takes a large 4 or 5 stage belt driven pump and, of course, the large storage tank. The main advantage is that you can have a very shallow pan for added ground clearance - not an issue for the SSR. It's really super overkill for our rides, unless you're into road racing/autocrossing, with big HP and highly modified suspension, with lowered ride height. For straight stop & go hits, a modded C6 pan, with an upgraded pump, will do everything you need, at 10% of the cost!
