Hello I have a 2002 mustang GT and dropped the K member. I am doing the motor mounts and a tubular K member. I have long tube headers to put on drivers side no issues but the passenger side is fighting me every step. I have taken out the starter and motor mount clearance the floor and bell housing of the trans. I have something else causing me issues I can't seem to find what it is. Any insight do I need to pull the A/C compressor or ? I am laying on my back with the car on jackstands and being a big guy can't see or feel any place it is hanging up I even pulled all the studs but the three that stayed in the head. Thanks for any input anyone may have.

Is the oem stud hitting a primary tube?? I had to trim or replace studs with bolts on my forward facing headers.

Also you need to take the thin metal shield off of the motor mount
