throttle body adapter??

i just bought a new bbk 75mm throttle body but i ran into a bit of a problem while i was installing it. well my car has the tall trickflow valve covers instead of the standard height ones and i have trickflow track heat heads and trickflow intake and throttle body adapter. but when i took off the old throttle body i noticed that it was t really tight fit. so when i tried to put in the new bbk one i couldnt get it on b/c the valve cover is in the way. is there any way i can buy a new throttle body adapter that will make it fit??? is so what do i look for when i but it?? i dont want to buy one and have to return it b/c it doesnt fit.!!

Haha well I'm glad you figured it out, I had no clue.

BTW, Cobra not Corba

If you own one at least spell it right.
