question (another) on chevy blower motor update

I have the heater box out and replaced a leaking core tight fit getting it out with factory air . While I ahve it out I want to do the chevy updated blower motor. Do I understand that I will need to cut the fire wall prior to reinstalling the heater box? If so what area do I need to expand? Would it be best to trace around the fan as a template then cut that out?

Sorry to beat a dead horse but I looked around on search for the photos (seen them before) and could not find them.

Cheers
Mike

you'll have to make the hole where the stock fan goes through the firewall a little bit bigger

I also have a question. It seems as if the new fan motor will have to intrude into the battery holder base plate. It is a fabbed job but it has a lower mounting strut brace which reaches the same height.

no, its tight, but goes under it (or at least mine did) with about 1/8 inch or so between the motor and the tray bottom.
