My Flow master kit gave me the same issue. Had to wiggle, bend stuff and fight with it for about an hour and a half to get it right. A real pain!.

I have noticed this as well, I had to get under there and show it who the boss really is. Looks good now though.

Haha that looks horrible! You have to physically adjust/ centre and then even get someone to hold them steady while you torque the bolts..

You could also wedge something in there to try and get it centered and then tighten it back up. Pieces of styrofoam, rags, etc.

Exhaust not centered

Loosening the clamps on the mid pipe can help you move the axle back around even more by enabling you to move the part of the mid pipe that connects to the axle back. If it is still that bad and you know for sure that the mid pipe or any other section of your exhaust system that comes before the axle back hasn't hit bottom and been bent or something similar, then it's on the company. I've seen several threads over Pypes and their fitment issues. Best of luck to you!

Wow, that's not even close! With my Borla Tourings, I just partially tightened the clamps enough hold the pipes in place but loose enough to let me move them about a little until they were centered. From there I just fully tightened the clamp and they did not move. Having said that they were pretty close to start with.

I found that mine did this due to the rear-most exhaust hanger rod being too long. I cut 1.5-2 inches off and then welded the ball tip back onto the end. They stay centered now. Before going through with it, I wrapped a bit of duct tape around the hanger rod to build it up. I worked my way outward until the hanger would stay centered after a few miles of driving. That way I knew how much to cut off.
