1. I thought mine was pretty level but having it slant to the front is pretty common and no problem since it counter-acts the engine slanting towards the rear in most vehicles.
2. I drilled and tapped my own fitting but I don't see a problem teeing it to that either.
3. Four I believe; one front/rear for pcv or power brakes (large nipple). One small for ported vacuum and one small for manifold vacuum.
4. I had mine polished first, then powder-coated and it looked very good. If you don't have it polished first, it will look rough due to the bumps on the casting.
