Off-set Pinion Shaft

In the process of aligning my '96 LT1 engine/4L60E tranny with the rear-end ('02 Camaro Limited Slip) for a 1937 Chrysler rod I am building, I just discovered the Pinion shaft is not in the exact center of the rear-end housing. It is off-set to the passenger side about 3/4". Is the best way to move the engine over the same amount (which creates some other space problems for me); or **** the engine in the frame ever so slightly? Does anyone know how the folks at GM handles this problem? Not having the engine square in the frame is my best solution.
