Angry Can't get the fu...... headers out!!

I'm in the process of replacing my oem headers with euro headers, so far everything was very smooth, until I get to the part where I just have to drop the headers, I thought the most difficult part was already behind me, but for the life of me I can't get these out, I've been wiggling, turning, pushing, and anything I can think of, but it always get stuck between, the tranny, body and the engine support place. do you guys have any tips I can use? which of the headers should come out first? should I just try to cut it?

TIA

You'll get it eventually. Keep wiggling, moving, turning etc and they'll come out. I do remember this taking a while the first time I did headers as well. Good luck

They have to come out kind of together. Fun times for sure. Especially on jack stands.
