Either way, you'll have a hole that needs a plate welded on. Cutting a larger hole would certainly make the work a bit easier.

You're not going to drill through the body and pipe in one pass, anyway. You have to drill or cut a large hole through the body, then center punch the pipe so the drill bit doesn't just slip off of it.
