Started Chevy 406 swap

So i have finally started my chevy 406 swap into my 90 YJ. Ive done quite a bit of research on the whole thing and believe i have everything down. My only problem is that i am not sure what headers i can use on a 406 that will clear the frame of the jeep. I have GM headers from an El Camino that are on it now, but theres no way they will clear the frame. Does anybody have any ideas as to what headers i can use? Input would be appreciated

I had similar questions and ended up getting the headers from Novak. They are block huggers that are very tight to the engine.

I have not installed the engine yet so I can not attest to the clearance but I gather from my research that the typical E-Bay block huggers with the center tubes that come out and over do not clear.
