1996 Explorer 5.0 into 1995 B3000

I have recently installed a 1996 Explorer 5.0 into my 1995 Mazda B3000 ( same as Ranger). One of the problems I've encountered is, using the advanced adapter motor mounts with the stock exhaust manifolds, the passenger side exhaust manifold collector is on the frame rail. Have any of you had any experience with this when you did your 5.0 explorer engine swaps??

you shouldn't need anything to get the passanger side exhaust manafold on, it would be the driver side that would be a problem.......if you put on a body lift i will lift up the ac box and give you extra room on that side so you can take off the adaptor
