We are installing an LS2 truck motor in a 57 Chevy with the same problem. Patriot makes a very nice ceramic coated header that works with a reasonable price. Purchased them through Ecklers. Another option we toyed with was having the flanges milled to bring the stock manifold in closer to the block but it removes way too much material by the time you get enough angle for clearance.
