Just re-reading everything about this swap...
One thing I notice now is that a body lift is recommended to clear the firewall and hood.. That is not an option for me, so reading this thread..
http://www.supracharged.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=35
customizing the mounts should do it, if guys are running a 1" body lift, and the engine mount combo used raises the engine 1 and a 1/4" then with my magic powers of mathematics I deduct that the 1" drop in the mount set up will give me my desired effect.. do you concur Very Happy

Now if I drop the motor on it's mounts by an inch, it will not only give me the clearance I need but it will also solve the driveline angle change mentioned in the thread above. Is there anything else to consider?
I'm hoping to find a 7MGE oil pan and pick up.

Oil pan clearance is the only other thing that comes to my mind, but you've probably already considered that as well.
