Finally got around to make a "How to" for how I simply made my oil pan for my 4.2 swap
Contrary to popular belief it is possible to make a oil pan work for 4.2 v6 swap with very minor modification.
What you need:
3.8 v6 oil pan
Cut 2 Studs
Bend a bracket
In my 4.2 v6 swap I used a 3.8 v6 oil pan, even though many people claim you can't. While having the engine completely apart we noticed there was only two studs preventing the oil pan from bolting on. The oil pick up tube also needs to be bent a little as well.
The oil pan I used is from a 1994 3.8 v6 Mustang. I am unsure if there are any changes in oil pans as the years progressed, I cant imagine there is though. If someone could confirm a difference that would be great.
Trim the two front studs so it looked like the picture below
Bent the oil pick up tube so it looks like pictured below.
You will have to play around with it a little until you are happy with the location
Now the pan should fit on without any problems
I've been driving my car for years now without any oil problems.
Hope this helps anyone doing some research or anyone facing the problem.
