Mouting Options for 2.6i Engine

Mouting Options for 2.6i Engine

I have a 2.6i 5 cylinder engine in my Syncro.
The engine is mounted straight up, and therefore protrudes from the body a bit. A fellow Syncro owner told me that I would be able to re-mount the engine at an angle and put a smaller sump on, which would "lift" it up a bit to improve my ground clearance.

Please would someone in the know give me some information and advice on this option.

Thanks in advance.

RE: Mouting Options for 2.6i Engine
and who would that be, would love to see that conversion, remember the sump contains the correct amount of oil for the engine, by making it smaller you either reduce the amount of oil in the motor or you end up with the crank churning the oil up and air-ratting it, both no win situations,

you will also need a custom bell housing/adapator, crossmember etc etc,

theer are lots of 5 cyl syncros driving serious off road with no hassles on motor height.

I may be a mechanic, but i can't fix stupid
Bad planning on your part does not make your issue an crisis to me
Bad workmanship by other garages does not entiltle you to better rates at me
Syncro, syncro , syncro and more syncro, this is the syncro way of life
