Hella Gen 3 Ballasts – Modify to Straight D2S connector?

I recently acquired and slightly supercharged (~42W) a set of Hella Gen 3 ballasts with the standard 90 degree D2S connector. However when installing in my Explorer I am not able to connect to the bulb without causing the projector to move out of alignment. Not enough room in the housing.. Has anyone modified the Gen 3 to straight D2S connector? Since the igniter is in the ballast it think is would be straight forward (no pun intended). Thoughts???
