Griggs K member and FPS racing oil pan clearance issues?

I remember reading on here that someone was having issues with their Griggs K Member and the FPS oil pan. I can't find the thread. I believe it was the front sump pan (https://performanceparts.ford.com/part/M-6675-FT302). I don't remember what the issue was but I am getting ready to buy this and the K Member and wanted to know what I was up against. Also, if anyone is running the Griggs K Member, what kind of pan are you running? Do you think the FPS rear sump pan would clear everything? (https://performanceparts.ford.com/part/M-6675-DRS302)

Thanks for the help.

Ed

I've used the DRS302 pan with the Griggs K-member. No problems with fit, engine set back one inch for header clearance reasons. Just going by the photo, the sump on the front sump pan extends almost half the length of the pan which is probably why there are fitment issues especially with steering rack.

I am not getting the K member that is set back. I am getting the stock location. I am also running a 8.2 Dart block, you think it will clear ok if I get the rear sump setup (DRS302)?
