I had some braided SS hoses made up and wrapped them with Thermotec heat wrap alongside the oil pan.
Seems to work pretty good.

This is what I'm working with for right now. I cut a lot off the mounts on the passenger side, had to trim the driver's side too. Crushed a small part of the header to get them bolted flush also. Was a hassle but other than being the most aggravating part of the transformation so far, it's okay. Still making some contact after being installed. Take a look here.

I'm going to pull the engine and rebuild and repaint later. IMG_2326.JPG IMG_2458.JPG IMG_2459.JPG IMG_2464.JPG IMG_2465.JPG

Can you change your oil with the pan bolt like that?

I always run Moroso oil filter bypass part# 23782 when I install an oil filter relocation kit, unlike the spin on versions these mount so the fittings are always inline so there is no interference with each other when mounting the AN hoses.

Nope! I literally did an oil change before bolting everything up... I have 3,000 miles or less before I have to pull the engine to rebuild! Time limit makes me get more power under the hood!!!
