Pypes header and solo performance exhaust

My pypes headers are not lining up with my exhaust. I got the kit from g8only.com. Anyone got any ideas why?

Slide the exhaust system forward to close the gap.
I have the same Solo system but with Kooks headers. Fits fine.

Then you need to bend the hangar some or loosen the joint clamp and slide the pipes out. It will go.
