Exhaust help 1979 mustang?

I recently put a O/R hpipe with Dual flowmasters, and shorty headers,

I got the driver side header too bolt in very Clean, the passenger side, has about a 1 inch gap between , the header and the hpipe, so its a annoying exhaust leak that makes a poping noise, when i went too go tighten it, i did a little on each side, so it went in even, but soon as you get so far, its so hard too turn, but its not even all the way thru, the header, its not making any since, if anyone knows how too fix this let me know?

You'll need to extend the pipe to make it fit if it's too short, or move the hangers.

here are a few possibilities, bolt is too long , and bottoming out. possible broken piece inside. Get a shorter bolt and see if that changes anything. Or take it to a muffler shop I always ask my trusted local mechanic for a referral to a trusted shop that he knows is a good shop.

I bought a H pipe one time and it was too short on one side. Maybe you need to return it or buy another one.
