[urq] AAN windage tray in 3B pan

not sure how much this will help you, Jon, but here's what I did.  I just
kept the existing stuff in the 3B pan and added the AAN windage tray b/w two
oil pan gaskets.  You will have to remove the oil pick up line to put the
tray in.  I did not take it the step further and make an extra anti-slosh
smoke poot deal.  With the windage tray and extra gasket, the pan is
effectively lowered a few mm, so the bolt holes in the oil pan do not line
up to the tranny.  Luckily they are not the threaded ones and you just need
to grind/ovalize them a bit.
