I have seen a couple of differant manufactures have to do this for clearence issues on the driver side head. Also you can tell the dent was there before they coated it so you know that they designed like that.

Ford Racing does that also(Probably has BBK make there headers) But either way i think you will be OK.

I heard that Meineke only charges $350 for the install.

Its a bargain...

Fair warning...
