Exhaust leak Xpipe

So I just put in a BBK Xpipe yesterday and all seemed to line up right and seat properly drove it a bit yesterday and some this morning. Lifted the car up this after noon to replace the pinion snubber I forgot to do when I did my springs (Ooops...) and turned the car on and checked for leaks. Low and behold its leaking at the flange were it connects to the cat-backs. it's not much but I can feel exhaust coming out

Any idea of how to seal this? I do not have a welder and have been possibly thinking of that exhaust puddy but I'm guessing that really isn't for long term fixes.

The exhaust putty doesn't work for too long at least in my experiences with it
