Anyone used a dry sump on an FD?

I'm curious if anyone has fitted a dry sump system to and FD. If you have pictures of the installation, i.e. where you placed the sump tank and so forth, that would be awesome.

Thanks!

For a street application?

Essentially, yes. Thanks for the clarification--I've seen one install with the tank mounted to the harness bar. That could work, but I'm not crazy about it. Passenger foot well is out. Love to find room in the engine bay, but that seems almost hopeless. But maybe someone's found a way for it to work? I need at least 8 quarts.

Completely useless for a street application.

The only place the tank is going to fit is somewhere in the interior of the car. That's what every street driver needs; a few gallons of very hot oil sitting in a metal can a couple feet from the driver! Better keep your air conditioning.
