I've heard it suggested that a pair of rear seals facing in both directions is a good idea with a dry sump. It'd probably take some block machining and special-ordered seals but it would likely help against the possibility of leaks.

Jay, Im sure you know that there is an oil dye to add and a blacklight will show you a bright green trace of where the leak starts. It is a great tool that is used at work at Ford. In fact the manufacture installs the dye in the engines , Trans , and even the A.C. has installed while assembled new.

Yup got some on the shelf. I like the red dye, when you get oil sprayed everywhere it looks like a cat got stuck in the fan LOL.
