Default Need help with headers

Alright so i am finally putting my headers on after 3 months and the drivers side is giving me trouble.

I have the header on and the bottom bolt in the middle is pretty much impossible to get on. Anyone have this problem? What'd you do?
Also the bolt that holds the dipstick in place on the top left won't go on. The bolt that comes off the block isn't long enough.

I said screw it and started it up but it's leaking

So i need some help please

If not soon i will have to drive a Hyundai to school tomorrow

Didnt have those problems with my pacesetters....Think you might have got the wrong ones? I dont know if 3.0 and 4.0 header bolts are the same or close to the same?

put a straight edge across the header to see if its flat, sometimes aftermarket headers are not perfect.
