Default Experience with the crank scrapers for redblocks?

Searching came up with a few that had installed the metal ones, but I'm most interested in the Teflon ones.

The pics of the b230 on his site are actually the motor in my wagon. Minor trimming as he mentions but nothing bad. Took me 30 minutes with a dremel to have it ready to go. No experience with the Teflon ones though.

I think there is only one company doing them for the redblocks.

At those prices why not just go with a dry sump setup?

I installed a teflon one last weekend.

Installed easy. Just a little teflon trimming with a blade.

Went on a new motor as part of a swap, so I can't speak to what
kind of improvements it gives. Claimed 1-2%, not bad if true.

It should help keep the oil in the pan on hard corners also.

I've had the thing on a shelf for a year and a half. I ordered it
in fall 2012, it took almost exactly a year to arrive. I had
pretty much written it off when it showed up unexpectedly. I'm
not sure if they stock them, or make them to order. It kind of
looked like they hand cut them with a plasma cutter and a
template.
