Did you order EL or AU difillipo's
There is a big difference.
Mine bolted in no probs at all.
Give them a call and see what they have to say.

Are you using the 6 cyl rack? If you are, block off the power steering pressure switch and remove it.

Correct V8 racks don't have the sensor so the headers are not expecting it to be there.

Nope, you don't need the power steer pressure switch on a v8 equipped car. I have pacemaker extractors in the EB Xr8 & they clear the 6cyl rack pressure switch by a long shot. v8 rack was accident damaged, and i had a spare 6cyl rack so i used it instead of getting the v8 rack repaired just yet. You can plug the rack up if you get the right bolt. Stick some thread tape or thread sealant on the thread before you insert it.

I left the switch in my rack as it fits without issue, it just isn't wired up to anything.

Cheers
