Rover K engine inclination

Dear chaps

Regarding my project car... I'm fitting a rover K engine (Rover 45) and in my application it would be better if I could have the engine
about 10-15 degrees more slant over. See pictures




I'm under the impression that the sump normally is level in the original car.




Will the engine agree with this ?

Do i need to alter...the sump or oil pick up ?

Will oil in the head accumulate or drain too quickly?

All the Caterhams run inclined. I've just measured my engine in the Caterham at the cam cover and it is inclined 14 degrees. That said it has a Caterhams run their own wet and dry sump systems that were designed for this inclination.

Cheers
