Motor Mounts

I have a 66 and am putting my engine in. It seems to be rotated slightly. My header collectors are about 2 inches different in height causing the right side to not allow installation of the extension pipe due to it hitting the transmission crossmember. The frame was from a different car and it had a 6 cylinder in it. Do I need to drill new holes in the crossmember for the brackets or what? Any help is greatly appreciated.

At first glance your engine, frame, support and mounts are fine, what you are describing sound like you have a set of one size fit all cheaply made headers.
Get a really big pry bar or piece of wood and bend that collector down slighty after heating it up with a torch-use caution though if you pry to hard to fast you could break the flange at the head where a tube is welded to it or at the collector where all 4 tubes meet it.

My 2 cents
