Fitting Samurai sump/oil pan to Sidekick?

I want to fit a Samurai sump to my planned buggy which will have a Vitara/Sidekick engine so I can increase the suspension travel.

So the bolt pattern lines up but there's some interference near the edge clutch side and the oil sucker is in the wrong place.

How much work will it be to get it to fit? Any one done this, got tips?

Many, many people have done this.

cut the windage tray to suit, weld G13 pickup to G16 pickup.


Pretty easy job.

Steve.

Thanks. I'm cutting the windage tray so that the pickup can go thru the right place?

I'm also seeing some interference as though the Vitara engine cranks need more space to clear the side of the Samurai sump near where the clutch is.
