As a general rule of thumb usually the bottom of the oil pan should be level when the engine is installed. The bottom of the oil pan in my CSVT is damn near parallel with the ground side to side and front to back and I believe is just about level with the bottom of the subframe. From front to back (timing cover to flywheel) of the engine (not relative to position in a car) the Duratech is level. As for the level of the engine from side to side (head to head) usually the rear cylinder bank is slightly lower than the front, but I believe most of that angle is determined by what the engine has to fit under.
