The brace and the oil drain plug of the Moroso interfere with eachother. There is not enough clearance for the drain plug to be unscrewed once the brace is installed. There might not even be enough clearance for the Brace to be installed at all. It was very close when I was eyeballing it during the install. If it did fit, then the clearance between the two would be next to nothing. You could alter the bar, or make a new drain plug location on the pan. Those seem to be the logical solutions. I wasn't interested in moving the location of the drain plug.


Good news for me. Sounds like I could just clearance the brace some buy cutting into the box tubing a half inch or 3/4" inch and plate it closed. Then move the drain plug for some extra clearance.

We ship UPS within the 48. I don't have exact weights or dimensions and exact location affects the cost some but I would guess $15-$20

K sick, lets get this list going so I have an idea how many plugs we need, and how soon this can go. I gotta get my car track ready in the next month and a half.

OK, I am in on the group buy....

As for the clearance issues, I looked at the pan....

Image

If you just cut off about an inch on the back side of the pan as shown here:

Then you can retain most of the kick-out, trapdoors, and the benefits of the pan. You will lose about a half quart of pan volume, but that's still better than factory.
Image

To replace that lost pan wall, you can either shave down the weld from the sides, and straighten the existing aluminum, cut it to size, and keep the drain. Or just use a new sheet of aluminum and fabricate a new drain port. (which I will do with the port located at a downward slope to ease oil changes)
the VIS hood group buy is now closed.... you missed out!

I am down for this group buy depending on when it will end. Do you have a timeframe for the payment process so that I may allocate the funds needed?

There is no deadline set in stone. I can make it happen anytime after we have a minimum of 10 together. Whatever works for everybody is fine with me. My project is going to be a long one so I'm in no rush. I guess we should start a list of people who are in.

I'll find out if they can move the plug and also eliminate the oil level sensor provision as well. If they are starting from scratch I don't see it being an issue. If they already have the pieces made up and just have to fixture and weld them, then they may not be willing. I'll try to find something out on that this week.

I spoke to Moroso today and they said they already have the pieces made up for the pans. They are willing to make them without the sensor provision and with a different oil plug location but they want substantially more for the pan since they would have to make all the pieces when they already have the other ones on the shelf.
