Are you using the dipstick tube I sent you or your old one? I found out that there are actually 3 different style dipsticks. I tried to get my old 03 Z06 tube in with those headers and broke it trying to get it in. That one I ordered I got it in 30 seconds. Also you can't install it with the headers off. Were you able to get those top bolts tightened ok? Also make sure you are routing it around the headers properly, I can't remember if it went through or around them. I'll look at my installed in car pics, maybe that will help.
Checked I didn't take pics of the passenger side installed.
