    you might need to move the motor forward and make a new drive line, it dont look like the motor was aligned right in the first place or @ all, there are a few guys with tx20's on here maybe one will chim in.

    The problem is the truck pan. It is roughly 1" deeper than the car pan. The jetboat-specific pans are all about 7 7/8" at the rear of the sump, which is the same as a car pan.

    You need to put a Jet Boat Oil Pan on the motor and the problem will be solved.

    i say all of the above is your prob.1 truck pan=bad idea(you need oil control in a jet boat or youll prolly lose your motor ie, baffels ,trap doors ,windage tray depth of pan 2. lo pro definatly lowers the engine height compared to stadard intake 3. a longer driveline lessens the angle but changes the center o gravity and therefore changes the way the boat handles maybe good maybe bad prolly bad and omg slower

    we are batteling the same problem as you except our drive line is exactly 0* we have a low profile intake as well. we just pushed the motor fowards right in front of the intake for now until this winter when we will modify the pan in the rear. instead of the rounded edge in the back we are going to make it angles up to clear the bolts. does that make sense?
