Question Dry sump 2zz-ge, install

I have sourced the majority of parts needed for a dry sump system on my Elise (2zz-ge), and now the planning of the actual installation can start, and some questions emerge.

1. How to remove the crank pulley bolt with the engine still in the car? Just to lower the crank pulley side to clear the subframe with driver side engine mount still in place?

2. How to handle the existing internal oil pump? Just to remove the outer gears in order to keep the inner gears to seal towards crankshaft?

3. Any other internal adjustments needed to the engine?

Any input from the race engine builders is highly appreciated!
