I definitely WANT a new motor but getting GM and my desires aligned will likely be problematic

Hey you'll never know if you don't start a little beef!
Put the ball in their court, they've done ALL the oil maintenance correct?

Try it! You just might get lucky.

CFD, are you making and selling those cross members? I gotta pull my pan.

Are we positive that the engine won't lift enough as is?

I never attempted to raise the motor so I cannot say first hand.

What I made was the flanges, then cut the existing cross member, slid the flanges in place and welded them while on the car to ensure proper alignment. I did not remove my pan but lowered it far enough to remove the inner baffle and access every inch of it. If need came to remove it you would have to remove the steering rack mounting bolts so it can be moved forward slightly and out of the way.

If you have someone who can cut the cross member and weld the flanges in and would like to try it I will take some measurements and write some instructions. I may have an extra set of flanges already made if not I can do a set for you.

If you go to pg 6 in my build thread there are some pictures of it on the car http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=170726

My l99 pump gave out at 18000 miles pretty much stock except for intake and exhaust
Dealer swaped it under warranty I use kn oil filters and joe gibbs ls30 oil
changed the oil couple days ago at 27000 miles found a lot of metal in the drain pan cut open the oil filter found some metal also showed the service writer he said it looked normal except now at hot idle oilpressure fluctuates between 20 and 28 psi so probably motor will betaking a dump soon
