Yeah I've found that the manual rack is pretty forgiving in clearance. You can pretty much run a std. front sump oil pan with the manual rack. However, I don't think the MII V8 bellhousing will work then. The starter is clocked tighter to the oil pan and you'd have to modify the std. pan to accept the starter. Possibly a mini starter might resolve? Never ran across this ... at least not yet. :D
