    In current project 37 Lincoln Zephyr hot rod.

    I have a Truck viper motor and a small issue with the oil pan depth sitting below the cross member and since this car will sit on ground would like to not put hole in pan.

    Can I swap the oil pans?
    What else is required?

    I assume oil Pan, pickup tube, inspection tube and dip stick but was wondering about oil pump?

    Any help / advise welcomed?

    I'm in the reverse situation, I have a gen3 motor/trans out of a car that I'm gonna put in my 2000 mustang, I'm thinking the truck oil pan will be a better option cause of the shape... Maybe we could work out something where we could swap all the necessary parts?? Maybe you could send me some pics with dimensions of that oil pan...?
