Dry sump is  the best form of surge control. Not likely the news you were looking for I suspect. The typical commercial windage trays should be better described as bottom end stiffening panels  rather than a surge control mechanism. Whether the Nord block actually requires stiffening is another subject altogether.
Transaxle Alfas Haul More Arse.
