E36 engine swap in an E30

It can be done, and has been, but I am having an issue wit the long headers, they are touching up against the frame, which is causing the engine not to sit right on the mounts.

Has anyone done this swap?

I really want to keep the headers, looking for some suggestions before I remove them completely, in order for the engine to sit right.
