If you pull the header off and place a straight edge across the ports you should be able to see where it is warped. Most headers have a weld bead built around the port and you can build up the low one and file it flat to match the rest. Its a pain but it worked on my blockhuggers. Also use the black felpro exhaust gaskets and don't over torque. Run the engine, cool it down then re torque.
