Yeesh. Probably another item that will be difficult to change with the headers. I'm sorry I can't be of much help, having never done this on these cars. What has worked for me in similar situations, is to take an inventory of all your extensions, swivels, anything you can think of to snake your way to the bolt hole. Tape the bolt to the socket if you have to. If you can pull this off at least you will know what is necessary to change the starter.

I would try to back the header bolts out and leave thread on them so they don't come all the way out. That or what straybuilt said are about all I know to do that are simple.

Assortment of extensions and wobble bars are your best friends.
