    Hi,
    I lm building a peugeot 205 with a k20 engine,
    The engine angle is making me worried that was the only way i could make the angle of driveshafts near enough straight,

    Have a look at the engine position and driveshaft angle and tell me if its bad or itll be fine as it is.?

    Thanks

    Nice project @ok2008 ! Certainly different.

    Engine seems to be at some 30 degrees, my concern here would be oil pickup issues. You possibly need to modify the sump internally so that the oil pump doesn't get starved.
    Im imagine plates that would get some plates welded into the sump to give a raised, level floor to the sump.

    Have a look at aftermarket sump baffles but those are more designed to counter lateral movement of the car, say on a track.
