Default 496 CMI twin engine install ?s

I just install CMI Etops in my 2006 formula 353. Had to lift motor to get headers to fit and now they are rubbing together between engines. Has anyone else had this problem? Should I dent to clearance them so they do not rub through?

If you have stock motor mounts you may be able to lower outside mounts and raise inside to tilt both engines slightly. You wil also have to maintain drive alignment.

Only option would be to shim my mounts. They are not adjustable but that my work. Thanks for advice.
