Default Leveling EJ20 in a custom project

I'm at the beginning of a custom tube frame build, moving an EJ20 to the rear to create a mid-engine car with the gearbox hanging out the back and using only the front drive (to turn the rear wheels).

Does anyone here have an opinion as to how important it is for the motor to be perfectly level side-to-side? Also front-to-back? Leaning the motor down a touch in the front will get me closer to where I want to be in terms of ground clearance.

There isn't a really good spot to put level for the side-to-side except for maybe a part of the intake that is right above the alternator. Plan to use that and just try to get close.

The motor angles upward toward the front in the stock application so that is what I would try to replicate although I think it would be fine if it were level. You don't want it angled side to side as the oil would not return to the pan properly on one side if you did this.
