Default Heater Box Mod

Can anyone please help me out ? I'm swapping my 2.3l with a 5.0 from a 87 Grand Marquis and I have been hearing that my heater box needs to be modified or trimmed back a little for valve cover clearence . If this is so can you tell me the best way to do it. Oh yeah and the truck didn't have ac .

yeah you only have to modify the box if you have ac because that sticks out a good foot or more and is a bit wider i belive
