If you want you can run a dry sump and lower the engine at the same time and get added clearance that way, still lots of work though. If this is for SCCA racing remember the engine can't be moved any farther back than the imaginary line intersecting the first spark plug and the front axle centerline and can't be lowered in the frame.
