Those with 06+ 4-Tec engines in a Conversion
Firstly i would like to thank both Damian (Autosport) And Rich (Richieb)
for finding this problem and bringing it to our attention..
they have found that on 06+ 4-Tec engines the scavenge pump housing is more pronounced and can rub on the conversion mount.. in doing so causes a vibration and possibilty of the grub screw walking out and giving a oil leak (if not rectified in time would cause damage to the scavenge pump housing ) you will find the pump housing sits directly on the mount in most cases...
this is what i did to rectifie the problem , there may be better ways i believe, this is what rich did on damo's ski or something similar... welded in a piece of solid ss round bar to retain the integrity of the mount and scalloped out the side that meets the scavenge pump housing, hope this helps someone else ..

Might be a little bit of overkill but nice work. I just notch that area with a grinder. Remember this isn't OEM but backyard redneck whitetrash enginuity!!! If shit doesn't fit perfect make it happen!!!
