Cool 60 vs. 90

If the 3.0, 4.0 are 60 degree and 3.8, 4.2 are 90 degree then how do we clear the a/c blower housing. I can only see two options body lift or cut the box and jeopardize loosing a/c / heating.
From the write ups in here it appears you cut the box or remove all together. I see alot of people recommend going 4.0, however only way to that if worried about h.p. is the sohc.. The direction I want to head is an old school "Grocery Getter" except in our modern world. (i.e. V-6). iam thinking 4.2or if I get lucky 3.8 s.c.............

Being those engines are a 90 degree V6, its pretty much the same deal as a V8. But, you have a 3.0L which means you can bolt up a FWD 3.8L to your trans. Basically, look at the V8 swap articles as far as firewall clearances go.
