Automatic transmission oil pan modification

Hello, I have a custom made car with a house made chassis. I've been driving it successfully with a dog ring manual gearbox.

I now would like to switch to an automatic transmission. The smallest gearbox being able to handle 460Nm/340ftlb of torque that I could find would stick 3cm/1" under the flat floor of my car. I can't raise the transmission or the engine.

My question is: Is it possible to remove the factory oil filter located in the bottom of the oil pan, flatten the oil pan and then place an external oil filter system?
