Ls7 Subaru brz swap.

I am swapping out my stock boxer motor for a ls7 from I believe a z/28, is there a oil pan to swap the larger portion from the back side to the front?. I have the engine, bought a engine harness and ecu new. T 56 tremec magnum xl transmission. I don't know much about routing of oil system, or where best place to get parts so any info from y'all is going to be an incredible help.

You can't swap a wet sump pan onto a dry sump engine with no other changes. There's a number of threads on BRZ forums or Vorshlag that show what pan to use for a wet sump engine which you don't have if from a Z/28. I would suggest mounting a dry sump tank and lines if you plan on taking that thing to a road course ever.

Sounds like a royal pain in the ass, but that thing will fly if you can do it! I wrecked a perfectly good 73 240Z back in the 80's swapping in a Chevy 350. Thing ran like the wind, but I learned a lot of lessons about just how much fabrication went into those type of builds. Good luck!
