2 to 3 degrees is correct.

Each U-Joint needs to have from 1 to 3 degrees difference through it.

O.E.M. "fore & aft" engines are all over the place from 1 to 7 degrees and sometimes even angled a bit sideways 1 or so degrees or off center on the chassis up to almost 3 inches.

Use the best compromise which will make the entire vehicle run the best it can be.
