Post engine setup angle

I am building a kit car and are unsure of of the correct angle when mounting the engine. The motor mounts are bolted in and ajustable. I,ve been told to put a level on the carburetor mounting surface to get the correct set up angle but my intake manifold (GM Performance dual plane intake manifold, part number 12366573) has a slant to it. When it's level(Manifold/carburetor) the transmission tailshaft is slanted downward. Is this carburetor/maifold combination designed to slant down towards the front and do I use another part of the engine such as the valve covers to level the engine

The angle of the carburetor mounting pad is to insure level mounting for the carb and the fuel level in the bowls. When set properly, the trans will have a downward angle.

It is best to ascertain the correct angle (level) once all the weight is on the suspension and you have your desired trim level.
