Until I do that, has anyone already done this and can ease my fears about low pressure in sustained left hand turns @ 255-265F oil temps? I'm using the 0w-40 Mobil 1 group IV synthetic right now. Do I need to go to a thicker oil?

Does anyone do baffled oil pans for N54's? Anybody mounted an accusump?

Thanks all.
No need. Been tracking hard since 40K miles. I'm at over 100k, with no issues. It's a non issue for us. The E90 M3 on the other hand............
