Thanks

Whats the application?

Wet Sump...... About 10-12 no more or you'll have issues with oiling.
Dry sump and special parts and coatings....... a bunch more.

The only electric vacuum pumps that I know about which have the power to pull enough vacuum in the crankcase are the ones that are used on Pro Stock cars. They are special built and around $2,000.00 to get one.

Need to keep it at about 10-12# much more and you'll have oil pressure and wear problems from no oil splash.

What about the evac system that uses the check valve in the collector? About how much they will pull or it will depend on a number of things?

The crank case evac system that im using is for sure pulling moisture but im not totally sure about vac.
What about the COMP electric pump that suppose to pull 12,15 or 20''? I think it has a regulator.
Thanks

The one I use on my car keeps it from pushing oil past the gaskets, when I use nitrous. I know it's not ideal for horse power, but it works for what I intended.
