302 Dual Sump Pan Modification Question

I have a late 80's EFI Crown Victoria motor in my buggy (see sig). It's got a dual sump pan.

I knew clearances would be tight during the motor swap and while tubing out the front. I've known all along that I'd have to bumpstop to 3-4" of uptravel to keep the pan out of the axle and to prevent other things from hitting.

I recently mounted my hydro ram and it's about 2" below the front hump of the dual sump pan. I am not a motor expert by any means and have done a little digging but haven't had a chance to remove the pan nor have I found a definitive answer by looking at parts catalogs or other builds.

My question is: Can I just pull the pan, cut a few inches out of the front sump and weld a plate in to cover up the hole? Or is there a pickup or anything that would need modification that would get in the way?

On the 5.0L the front hump is where the oil pump is. I don't know how much room you have to remove metal from the pan in that area, but there probably is some. Easy fix? Raise the motor.

You might gain an inch or two with a standard rear sump pan, however the clearance for the oil pump is still required.
