More complex answer, almost.

You need the rev3 oil pump - you will then also need the rev 3 cam belt.
.
You need to to drill & tap some of the mounting holes for the rev3 scraper plate (rev 2 it's built into the sump)..
A couple of the sump to block bolt holes don't line up, so will need block drilling & tapping or sump drilling.

:D

Can anyone see any benefit in just swapping over the sump between Rev2 and 3?

I would say that people overwhelmingly use the Rev3 over the Rev2.

Why is a much bigger question which is tougher to answer, there a certainly more bigger power ST205's out there than ST185's but that is in my opinion at least partially to do with the popularity of the ST205 over the ST185.

1) The oil filter & sump & baffling setup is much better on the ST205.

2) There is some babble on the internet that the ST205 blocks suffered more from cracking.

Item 1 is clear - Item 2 is not.

thank you very much, so really a baffled sump would be a good addition to the rev 2 bottom end

I think number 2 is due to their being a lot more tuned Rev 3 engines out there.

When you take into account the USA 3sgte tuning scene I would suggest the rev 2 is more common in high power guise than rev 3.

It is speculative either way.
