So ive been searching a lot.

I been looking for a solution to the clearance problem of the steering link with the oil pan.

 

I cant find a clear answer, ive tried creeping through the swap pictures and i still cant find out how other people do it.

 

ive been "working" on my project for the past 4 years and cant seem to get any progress, maily becasue

i travel a lot.

I think it was a truck but a guy who did either vg30 or vg33 ended up fabbing an oil pan out of like 3 oil pans

Lol you really think he would tell anyone, ahh yes Mr. Peterson I was taken a piss and everything got dark like there was an eclipse, when I look back to see what was making the shade when WHAM!! Cock hit me right in the face. I don't know whose it was but we could match up the bruise.

Try to find some pictures of the oil pan the experimental engineering (vg30.Com) makes, I do think k ow if Dave has the site up any more but you can also try to find Dave Carroll on facebook.

I yeald to the wisdom of Q on this one.

Flip crossmember, run a Nissan quest front sump oil pan and pick up tube.

Or make your own. I modified an oil pan to fit in my build thread, "half pint - z22 swapped goon". I did it to install a z22, but the basic process should be the same if you're interested.
