Default Default Pinion vs output shaft angle. How much is too much

So in my project, after finally getting VET, turbo, CAS, etc etc to fit, its now off to the gearbox. On initial measurements, the difference between the pinion and outshaft angle is about 1.2 -
1.5 degrees. Its independent suspension in the rear, so the diff is isolated from up/down side/side movement. A 1 piece driveshaft ill be used.

The issue is I cannot physically get the gearbox any higher without some cutting/welding and I am trying to keep the chassis all in one piece.

Is there a rule of thumb in regards to difference in angle between the pinion and output shaft?? I have read anywhere up to 5 degrees is acceptable, but would like to hear some other opinions or "facts".

Note: I have seen the below pop up in regards to proper angles
