Yes without your and Rich's huge help getting it from one corner of the continent to the other I would have been SOL. Thanks again to the both of you.

While I had planed to cut the crossmember to clear the dry sump pan , it was so close to fitting (engine would sit on mounts with only a relief for the tank drain) I decided to rework the oil pan.


Clearancing, as expected put holes in the corners



Which have to be made to "go away" along with the tank drain.

While the oil passages and lines may make sense in a Corvette, the routing does not if you are running the dry sump tank in the front.
To that end, I am blocking off the internal passages from pump side of pan.
The boss sitting on top will become the relocated dry sump drain (LS7 has two drains)


Machined plug intersects oil passage to "turn it off"


Lines will now come straight off pump at front of engine.
This will remove about 3 feet and numerous bends from each of the lines.




That's all for today.

More upgrades.
Brand new SSR T56 thanks to Santa Harper
Large output, one piece counter shaft


Now the Lt1-T56 combo coming out can stay as a complete setup for some other car
