Default Can I Raise The Height Of Engine??

Hi--I am building a Yak-18 military trainer 40 size ARF from Hobby People. Invert, 40 Magnum does not line up well with the fiberglass cowl. I would like to raise the engine about 3/8" --As it sits now to line up the center of the crank shaft with the hole in the cowl, the cowl has a downward slant looking from the side view and looks stupid. Side to Side is good. What effect will raising this engine- 3/8" -have on flight??
