Is an oil accumulator needed?

I see most people on here atleast in the turbo section don't run one...why not?

Are they a waste of $$$ or what?

I ran the moroso with a electric silonoid valve, when you killed the car, the valve would shut keeping the unit pressurized with oil in it, then on a cold start, I would turn the key on and wait a few seconds, then crank, this is a great pre-luber, puts oil on all bearings before you start-up

The one I was looking at would be a gravity feed so if the oil pressure dropped it would flow enough to save the motor.

I have not used these on my car...I have used them on other race motors for just what you are talking about. I always used a manual valve though (and a guage on the accumulator)..

Affter the engine is running and warm.. rev the engine so the oil pressure rises and close the valve (between the accumulator and engine. I could usually hold 75-80 lbs of pressure in the big block..

Then before i would crank the truck again, open the valve, let it pressurize the oil system for a few seconds then crank the truck. Always worked well, just remember to close the valve before you shut it off so you build pressure in the accumulator.

They say what goes up must come down but I ain't reached my cruising altitude.
Take a look at what I did but can you imagine what I'm about to do.
