I did, that's how this started. The ones I bought don't fit, like I was told they would. They hit the motor mounts.

Ah, I see. Is there a motor mount problem or just the wrong headers?
Try for a refund on those headers if they cannot be reasonably modified.

I suggest you use the gasket idea. Gaskets will always be bigger than the ports but will give you a dimension to work with.
