4R70W question

I'm doing a 5.0 swap into a 1980 Volvo. Looking for a little more room in the trans tunnel and have already cut off some bosses from the case.
(white arrows)

Wondering what the Ford tranny guys think about grinding off the area pointed by the orange arrow?

I am not a "tranny " guy per se but I dont see a problem with doing what you are proposing. I would be a little cautious around the area closest to the front where the radius in the case is as there is a rotating part under there. The case may be a little thinner right there. Just dont go beyond flush with the case and the depth of the hole in the boss that your choppin on.
