This Caddy engine I have has a front sump oilpan, and I was talking to a tech guy at Maximum Torque Specialties (Caddy Engine Guys) and he told me that the only reason I'd need the Eldo oil pan is because of the engine crossmember. Rather than paying $300+ for a rear sump oil pan, how hard would it be to just take that crossmember out and fab one right behind the sump? Are there any good reasons not to do this? any constructive input and comments are more than welcome!!!
