    You'd have to modify your existing pan. The screened pickups, that's pretty normal.

    TA performance in Scottsdale AZ has a deeper than stock pan and pickup
    Measured it in my jeep and looks a bit too deep based on my engine location.
    Think a wider in drivers direction would be better w possibly a baffle/trap door

    If you are willing to do as Rich M. suggests, look at this thread by tarry99, pg5, post #81.

    Being the recipient to that motor and mod, I can testify that it works well.
