Headers sometimes fit based on oil pan....which does the header support and which is on your car?

How far off and in what direction? Every header I've installed on my car (3 I think) has been about 1/8" too narrow to fit over the studs on one side or the other. It takes a lot of force trying to separate the two banks of the header (pull them away from each other), but it always manages to fit eventually, just barely, and with a lot of yelling.

Headers should not need to be pryed on to get them on

I know I have no intention on prying on them for now I put them away and my stock manifold back on I did enough yelling and cursing for one day. I'll ask my guys at Motiva here in Albuquerque for a idea or two.

I had an el length amr header which slid right on... problem I had was getting the up-pipe bolted to it. Such a piece of poo! Wish I had never wasted my money on it
