My dipstick is either touching the header pipes or the engine. My friend was helping me install it on my 09 G8 GXP and I think we routed the dipstick the way it was with OEM manifolds. I added about 0.75" worth of washers and it made it a bit better.
Here is how it is now before adding washers to the bolt on the block that hold the dipstick tube:









Is this the way it is supposed to be?

you need to get spacers (stack of washers) and ever-so-slightly bend the dipstick tube. It will be on the outer side of the headers once you accomplish this task.

So take it completely out, bend it, put it back in on the outside of the headers?

At least if I remember correctly. Although, looking at your pictures, I don't think it goes on the outer side of the headers. Ill look when I get home.

If you google headers g8, and go to images, you will see a few that should give you the correct idea.

I did an image search for G8 dipstick and didn't find anything useful. Also didn't find threads here with pictures of dipstick and Doug Thorley headers.
