Need advice dry to wet sump LT4

What would it take to swap a LT4's dry sump to a wet sump to put in a Camaro?
I have an opportunity to purchase a 2016 Z06 long block that's dry sump.
This motor is cheap cheap as the young kids would say cheap AF!!
BUT.... What would the damage be to do this swap from a dry to wet sump?
Is it as simple as replacing the oil pickup tube and the oil pan
or more cost?
I really don't want to spend another 1k.

Thanks In Advance

it will require a oil pump and probably a crank too.

Notches in the crank drive the oil system differently in each system.

Saw it in a YouTube video, don't remember which one.

if I recall the dry sump crank's key is shorter as it only needs to driving the timing gear. The wet sump crank has an elongated key to drive both the oil pump and the timing gear.

So what you guys are saying is this would not be a easy task to do, being you would need to swap the crankshaft.
so even if the motor was at 3-3.5k he would be better off buying internals for his motor?

Most likely as he would probably have to rebalance the rotating assembly when switching cranks anyways.

That said though it's probably possible to run the dry sump system in the camaro but im not sure what is needed for that. Above my pay grade lol
