  3. Hey mate, my engine is also a fg engine and my sump is also the same, we didn’t modify the pickup, we left it in the factory position and instead spaced the cross memeber down and posistined the engine in the right spot around the hump in the front, the other ford engine that went into the red 240z I believe was from either a ba or bf which have the pickup up the back, you could see if you could get one of those sumps on the fg engine and position the oil pickup in a different spot/place but I’m not sure if you can do that, we even took me sump off the held the engine on the crane a few mm above the crossmeber chocked the engine up so it wasn’t sitting on the Windage tray, re fitted the bonnet and still wouldn’t close without having to modify the bonnet so instead we spaced the cross memeber down and used mounts from the side of the rails with crush tubes welded in and it sits in ge bay pretty well, i will have to modify/widen the hump on the bonnet by about 20-25 mm either side to fit the front of the Ford engine in there cheers
  4. Hey mate yeah you will need to space your corssmeber down, we didn’t modify the sump or pickup, we could have but chose not too, instead we lowered the crossmeber and positioned the engine in the lowest/best place possible with the front of the factory dip in the fg sump is wpuld lobe to see photos of your z with a Barra in it too!!
