I made the decision to modify the cowling vs changing out the sump. If I changed out the sump I would have to modify the snorkel to clear the alternator and the starter. Not that big a deal as its fiberglass, but I could restrict the airflow causing a slight power loss. So I will be selling the brand new 7 degree sump in the classifieds.
You will see from the following pics how I modified the cowling
