1992 Chevy C1500 with Vortec headed 350, 5 speed. Cant find long tube headers...help?

I bought a set of no-name ceramic coated $300 long tubes made for a 1998 Vortec... but they dont clear the slave cylinder on my transmission. It sticks out on the passenger side pretty good.

The truck is a 1992 Chevy C1500, 2wd, with a 5LM60 5 Speed transmission, and the centered style engine mounts.

Are there ANY longtubes out there that will fit my combo? Or am i stuck with shorties? What are better shorties or block huggers? If im stuck with shorties, which ones will work with a manual?

As of right now, I have not found any headers that EXPLICITLY state that they will work for my application (with a manual transmission). Guess im gonna have to start calling companies tomorrow.
