Maybe try an Accusump, as you can mount them in the boot for example.

I have it also on my car.
The sump itself and its effects are good.
In combination with my oil cooler i have almost 10 litres of oil now.
It is also not as low as the trust extension.

It had to be rewelded once because it was leaking, since then no problems.

Mine came super fast no issues dealing with them, and clearance will be fine with it. It's used worldwide and nobody has had issues with them.

I will add my 2 cents here.

Paid the guy in 11th of November for the sump. Nothing so far. He was happily answering my emails until I made the payment....Unfortunately I found this thread too late.

Could someone tell what are the dimensions of this sump?

I got my sump extension in two weeks, but it was missing 3 pieces, then he doesn't answer to my emails anymore! After two months of emailing him, Saifskyline called him and this jonne told that I can't have my missing parts. Nice.. one part was longer oil pickup which I have to weld it myself because this great guy.

Im now making my own, have scanned the stock sump into solidworks. Next I will make 3d model and will cut it out from 5mm aluminum alloy. Luckily I had sump baffle in my car, so will manufacture this also to meet new sump requirements.

You know with Jonne you have to actually drive to his shop and get the parts? That's how it works with him. He is just too busy / most likely forgetting so he just doesnt know he needs to send you a sump... that's it with him!

No mate, he's a ****ing crook, plain and simple. If he's advertising sump extensions, and people pay for them, he needs to despatch them within a reasonable time frame. There's very few people on here have a good word for him so to try and make out he's a bit busy is a crock of shit.

I know this is an old thread, but does anyone have any specific welding tis for welding sump extensions to the RB26 casting. I made a nice sump extension for my RWD sump, and now need it welded to the cast pan. The extension is made of .190" 5052, and it welded up fine, however welding that to the nissan casting is the issue. What filler rod, welder settings, and techniques are used?

i welded a lot of the cast alu parts for skylines without any problem.
I use 5053 or 6066 filler, just be shure you use more AC balance as you need to cook out the dirt in the weld of the cast alu.
And when you're tungsten point is melting, you need to change to different tungsten.
I use 1.6mm for ALL cast alu welds, and pre-heat you're cast alu part to minimize bending when cooling off
