EGR problem

Well we installed my JBA headers tonight and everything went fine except for when i went to hook my EGR. It bolted right up to the headers like it should but when i went to connect it back up top it was not long enough. We tried to make it reach but it aint possible. Does anyone know what would be a fix to this? I had an idea but idk if it would work. We thought about maybe getting some pipe and putting female connector and male connector on there and maybe making it as an extension but idk if that would work? Any suggestions or input would be much appreciated. I have a picture but not very good quality cause it from my phone. I tried to zoom in but still looks like crap.

I`d keep trying to nudge that thing over. All you have to do is get one thread started and it`ll pull itself in place. Its copper, you`re not gonna hurt it if you bend it a little.

When I had my headers installed last year, all the shop did was add a 2 inch copper extension and bam 30 min later I'm on the road. So I would just get some copper piping and make an extension for it.. Then you should be good to go.

Someone else in the forum installed JBA's and had to do the same thing. I accidentally bought the non egr headers and just deleted my EGR. It never even threw a code but I had Doug Tune it anyway.
