Default any have a problem with header after a 1.8 swap

swapped 91's 1.6 for a 96's 1.8
Look at the center of the pic and notice the header hitting the fire wall. any one else have this problem with an obx header for a 1.8 motor? had an obx on my 1.6 and it fit like a glove. plan is to "persuade" the firewall to move back an inch or so in that spot.

just curious if its a common problem with the cheap header or the swap. any feedback is appreciated. header is only there until santa or the tooth fairy brings something from BEGI lol

I didn't have this problem with a stock 1.8 header. Maybe a motor mount issue? Or just the cheap header.
