Is this the sump you’re on about? Not sure it would fit a FWD?

If it is designed for a RWD, when you place it in a FWD, the baffles will only work in hard braking or strong accelerations, right? LOL

So the options are buy the inline one and modify . Or ALIBABA have the capability to make them if provided with the information . possible that to make just one or two would be to costly ,so i will in the future be going option 1 .

I can remember reading in cars and car conversions years ago an item about a Honda engined rovers racing series. They found out that by lowering the engine oil level from the maximum mark to the minimum mark you got an extra 6 horsepower and of course once one of them did it they all had to or you wouldn't win, I myself used to drive a Toyota that drank oil like no other car I've ever owned and I could tell when it needed a top up as the car went better when the oil was low. Is any of this valid for Primeras 🤔 Who knows ? Not me , anyways I always keep my oil level above the minimum and use the good stuff.😀

Yes, your engine will be faster with less oil in it. Much hotter also...
It depends on so many things if you can get away with it, without risking engine damage. So i would advise not to do this and always try and keep your oil level near maximum.

There are better ways to make some power. If you want those 5-10 horses from your SR20, go for a crank girdle delete (Not all SR20's have a girdle) and/or put in a crank scraper and windage tray.
