Port it with a port a power. You will be able to hear the rattle and then you'll have to go back and do it the right way, after the fact. Trust me, do it right the first time and port it. If you have the tools, it would only take one minute to do it.

You might not need to do anything if it's a 3" on the OBS. Porting is basically bending the firewall back towards the cab so that there's a little extra clearance for the dp. It only takes a little bit to do it. The port a power if placed between the motor and the firewall and, through hydraulics, pushes the firewall back to create that clearance.

all I did was wedge a 2x4 in between the block and firewall and pried at it a couple times and that bent it out enough that it just slid right in, no rattle or anything
