I have the front sump sway bar from fotofab. Cleared the pan no problem.

Ryan,
I got an email from you on July 18th and replied the same day. Looks like your spam folder may have eaten it.

Anyway here was my reply.

Ryan,

With a KA24, the sump is forward of the crossmember. Our front sump bar should work. It will depend on how the cross member was modified. Most flipped cross members have the center section is cut out, reversed and re-welded in place with the bend to the rear for room for the sump. I've had customers have difficulties with how some of their cross members were modified, but generally if the cuts for the flip are made no more than 1/2' to the inside of the motor mounts you are good.
