: FWD Sump swap for RWD?

05-27-09, 03:09 PM
I'm hoping to fit a 2000 N* into a rwd application using a TH700R4 from a Chevy V6, modified as per the excellent CHRF site. The car it's going into needs a rear sump to clear the front crossmember. I'm wondering if the new longtitudinal Northstar has such a sump (with the bump at the rear) and if yes, can I fit a late sump (and oil pickup pipe) on my 2000 engine, or should I just get a new one made up using the base I have at the moment? I know a great tig welder...so that will not be too much of a problem.
