Hi Michael,

I have only run the old Clark's headers, but one thing I noticed is that the real ground clearance issue comes at the bend right out of the head, you'll have the most problems there.  I gained some clearance on the rest of the system by making a custom set of trombones and used mini turbo mufflers to tuck the whole system up next to the valve covers.  I didn't run a rear grill at all, so I can't help you with the hole location, sorry.
