Default Kooks LTs to Corsa with catted connection question

Those with this setup, did the kooks cat connection for the Corsa system fit together nicely? Mine was a tight fit and really had to be muscled to get them to line up when attached to the Corsa x pipe. With one side attached the other was off by about 2"-3". My concern is that this pressure will over time affect the headers. Does this sound normal?

Thx!!

I would try to loosen everything up again and start over and see what that does

There are left and right sides to the Corsa catback pipes. If they got mixed & match or just plain put on the wrong side, it wont fit together correctly. One side of the exhaust is a tad longer then the other. If you have your instructions still, you can reference that and the part numbers on the pipes themselves to get them on the correct sides. Also, when clamping the exhaust, you don't need to shove the pipe all the way into the connecting pipe, just need it to slip past the slot in the pipe.

Thanks! I thought I had it all right from the beginning, but I will climb back under and give it a shot.
