That's within reason...can't have the engine/trans centerline down 10° and pinion up 10° and have it live for long...to much working angle on the u-joints.
Another good place to check engine/trans angle is the face of the harmonic balancer.
Fuel injection makes it even lees important what the intake top angle is, carbs with floats are the only thing affected there by too much angle.
Exactly ^^^ But you also cannot have a zero angle at both ends of the driveshaft either. U-Joints need a slight angle to work correctly.
