Possible to convert M20 to rear sump oil pan

Possible to convert M20 oil pan to rear sump for engine swap into Triumph TR6?


I know M50, M52 and M54 were this way. What do you guys think?

looks like I will have to do like the guy from the Roadspeed garage and remove the battery tray and sides of the transmission tunel opening then box back in and set the engine tranny back further behind the frame crossmember.

The Jaguar AJ6 is rear sump and has an aluminum block.
