    Dan, Great work, writeup and pictures as usual.

    Would the damage have been minimized or at least limited if the driver was alerted to the sudden drop in oil pressure or was the damage done progressively over time??

    I'm thinking there could be a way to intercept output from the oil pressure sender and RPM gage to sound an alarm in case of sudden oil pressure drop while engine is running. Do you think that would've prevented or reduced the damage sustained by that engine? TIA.

    Thank you.

    I think its a sudden failure and happens to fast to really prevent any damage. Some modern cars and aftermarket engine management systems will cut the cars power with oil pressure drop.
