Our X302 came on a wooden pallet closed with cardboard. Stripping back the cardboard left the engine nicely exposed, supported, and easy to dress. Because the oil pan rails hold the engine, almost everything could be bolted to the engine, including the engine mounts, flywheel, clutch, headers, and so on. With a Mustang-friendly double-sump pan, the X302 is ready-to-go in that respect. However, it comes with an SN-95 dipstick; we substituted our existing Fox dipstick, which works fine.
