There are at least three different oil pans for the 2xR motors - front sump, mid sump and rear sump, so I'd hope one of them would work.

Well 2014 has been crazy I am finally working on the corona. I received a brake booster rebuild kit new old stock from Thailand
 

And I also power washed and started taking the corona completely apart im just debating what compressor to buy and what media blaster to get

A lot has happened and I havent updated my postings I modified the stock 18r mount for the drivers side and re-drilled thr 22r mount for the passenger side test fitted the 22r and it fits dead center.. I kept the 18r rubber mounts because they were slimmer than the 20r ones I bought

I wanted to check what was cheaper to powder coat the suspension or buy a special coating for the frame. . Then I remembered that I used rustoleum for some under carriage parts on my old integra. .. I decided to try it out .. for $20 I got primer paint and mineral spirits .. I degreased and media blasted the parts in my cabinet  prepped and then painted .. I think it came out great
