Shelby does have a set of headers for an aluminum car that route that tube under the steering shaft. Maybe you can replace that one tube?

Shelby headers can be a nightmare.
I was hoping they would just send me a new tube - not so much...
Shelby installed the motor for me so I am hoping it is done right. I have tried to manipulate the tube with out cutting it without any success. I am probably going to have to cut and reweld it...
