Time for the 229 v6 to go. I found a low mileage GM rebuilt 2002 5.3 truck motor for my 1981 Malibu. Looking for feedback on cutting 1 1/2 from the truck oil pan sump and welding on a 1/4 plate. My friend can do it where he works. Car sits at stock height. Concerned about oil pan hanging to low just looking for input from anyone that has done this.
