400 drivetrain angle

Ok, I am mocking up my 400m and tranny into my tube buggy project. My question is what angle should my drivetrain be mounted at? I have a edelbrock performer intake. The carb surface is angled 4 degrees forward in reference to the top of the block. should the carb be level? If so then the block would be angled 4 degrees back. Is this correct?

Thanks

What did you decide on for an engine? And what are you running for a tranny?

This is going to be cool. I seen "elsewhere" they were trying to convince you on not using the 400.

You should post this in the Offroad forum, get more feedback, and a bunch of smart guys over there.
