how quick in the kia motor? and how easy was the swap? also did it bolt up to the trans with no problems?

After you find a way to mount the crank angle sensor on the trans it all bolts together without any problems. You'll have to modify the wiring harness and mount the computer some were. Other than those two items the swap was pretty straight forward.

how much lower is the oil pan? i had to drop my f2 an inch to clear the hood and the oil pan is pretty close to the 1 inch flat bar crossmember. thinkin of doing the swap.

I ended up using a stock 2200 oil pan baffle and pick-up tube since the kia sportage pan was quite a bit lower and hit the cross member without the engine being lowered in the chassis.
