Angry 2013 bbk shorty header instal help!

I'm installing bbk shorty headers on my 2013 Mustang GT.
Driver side is in, passenger side is kicking my @$$!
I get the engine jacked up as high as I can, have taken both the motor mount and the frame mount out and I still can't get it in.
It is hitting the bolting points for the starter. Car is an automatic, but that doesnt seem to be the problem.
Anyone else do this and any ideas?
Thanks!

BBK Headers, Pass side

Got it in last night. Watched the video of an install and saw they started with the flange up going in. It went right in. I've seen where some say the strter is a *****, but I had no problems. Broke one bolt on the Pass cat, but we managed to get the stud out. Also, that ground wire on the engine mount did not come of easily, in fact the lug broke. Try finding a crimp on terminal lug for a #4 wire. Went to an electrical supply place but all they had was heavy duty stuff. Found one at a local hardware store.
Thanks for your help.

Why are you going through all this trouble for basically no gains? Heck longtubes provide minimal gains never mind shortys.
