Question on JBA Headers

Hi guys. I am a new member here from GE. I got a quick question for you. I recently installed some JBA headers on my truck and when I was finishing up mounting the exhaust back onto the header, the driver side was really easy and lined up perfectly. The passenger side not so much. In fact, there is now a small exhaust leak and you can hear it as you hit the gas (the leak is very very small, but it is there). I can get a pic of it if you want to better decide the right answer. It sounds like a really bad version of those honda civics with fatty mufflers. My question is how to fix that obviously. I've asked some people around and they either told me I am going to have bend/add more pipe to the exhaust so it fits better or use heat resistance silicone and put it on the outer ring of the valves so when I push them together it fills the gap (which it most likely would since its so small). So now I leave it to you guys...Any other suggestions?

-Ronnie

I've used that fiberglass muffler tape when my JBA exhaust didn't line up perfectly with the cats, it worked well so far, been on there about 10 months.

weld it. if upgraded it the stock parts are no longer used. and is cheaper and permanent. can't go wrong and it will definetley stop the sound and leak.
