I had a new engine build with 2x TTP kit, deep sump and accusump, but engine still only lasted 1500miles on track. I fully believe the problem is air in the oil that make the bearings fail, not oil starvation.

First thing I would do is to replace the crap oil-return pipes with them from the 996 engine https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1...-a235-4ba2-a816-74473fd555f0.jpg?v=1485352084 , fit deep sump and make sure you use a good oil.
For my next engine I will take all the scavenged oil from the heads out of the engine, true an oil/air separator Spintric® - Air Oil Separator :: ARE Drysump Engineering and oil-cooler before returning it to the sump.

Good luck with your project :)

Chris, Were you able to complete your project sucessfully? I am interested in the TTP kit "oil safe kit" that can be purchased from Germany. I have upgraded my cooling system to include new CSF radiators and a CSF GT3 997 center with chimney exhaust and a GT3 oil/water heat exchanger. Three mechanical 270 degree Autometer gauges, oil temp, water temp and most important oil pressure into a WRX gauge holder mounted on the dashboard. The TTP kit, LN said is not available any longer, however it shows up on the TTP web site. Just curious if you were successful.

I sold the car before completing the build.
