actually i went ahead and bought the headers too good of a deal to pass i fitted them on last Saturday and with the motor mounts that i fabricated myself they cleared the frame by about a quarter of an inch. Thanks for the reply anyway.

the headers worked great but i had to fab my own brackets to make them work without cutting the frame. i have a set of the trans dapt mounts that are supposed to work with the headers without any frame mods, however they do not work that way.
