 I can't say for sure without seeing the truck, but I would opt for changing 
the motor mounts, or even making a custom oil pan, before I would even think 
about hacking the fire wall. The motor mounts, and or the oil pan won't show as 
much as changing the look of the firewall. I have the TCI MII IFS in mine, 
and the original crossmember is gone, so I don't have any clearance problems. 
The motor sits forward enough that I have about 3-4 inches from the firewall. 
You might even look at "notching" the crossmember for clearance for the oil 
to move the engine forward.
 With a good cutting torch and welder, you can make anything fit.
