New Moroso pand and crossmember brace removal

I just bought a Moroso oil pan and when I go to drop the motor in, it hits a V shaped brace that ties into the k member right under the motor. This brace is bolted in so I removed it to get pan clearance. Anyone else run into clearance issues when using a larger pan?

Depending on how space you need, you could shim the motor up by the motor mounts.

Are you using the stock K member? Normally not really a problem especially if using an aftermarket K member.
