I know for another vehicle application, Moroso had made a pan that didn't clear ARP bottom end main studs. Seems like that would be an obvious design consideration, but I know they can't always take all the different aftermarket parts into consideration - especially for a platform like the Mustang.Been a while since I've updated this... with the first snowflakes falling in MI over the last week, the car is done for the season. So, the winter projects can begin!
Made another close-out plate for the center stack, since the oil gauges moved to the main cluster. Just has the OBD/MIL for the new engine on it for now.

Also deconstructed the front end of the car so that I could install the road-race oil pan sitting on the shelf since before the new engine was installed..... I find it funny that the Moroso 'Coyote-Swap' road race oil pan had huge clearance issues to the BBK 'Coyote-Swap' headers.. anyway, trimmed the corner down, it's now at a friend's to get a plate welded on to cover up the hole. Once back, and once it's cleaned out, that can get installed. Will also spend some time removing a lot of the old wiring that is not needed, but was bundled out of the way.

Plenty of other small projects as the winter goes on, will continue to update this in chunks as items get checked off the 'to-do' list.
