alright guys so today i installed the borla s-type on my 2013 v6 (i will post a before and after sound clip this weekend) and it sounds amazing. the only problem was when I was installing it, it began to get dark and was raining , so after installing them, i realized that the passangers side exhaust was lower than the drivers side. is there some way i could realign them without having to take out the whole axelback?

Try to move it around? Unless I see what is wrong I can't really help you.. Pics? It's quick to take it off so why not get it right

Yeah you're probably right. I'm just going to take it off and redo it. The hardest part was taking off the stock ones anyways

by the way, just out of curiosity, is it necessary to tighten to 32-35 ft lbs? like what could go wrong if one were to just tighten it until it was tight? ( i tightened using the torque wrench just curious)

Adjust the catback piping a fellow member said that works great and another member did it and it worked great for him

Simply loosen all the clamps on that side, then move the pipe(s) to get the proper alignment, then tighten everything up.

Alright so I completely removed my drivers side exhaust that was hanging too low and reinstalled it... Still to low. I tried playing with the hinges for about 25 min, I even took of the back rubber isolator holder system (the one closest to the tips) and slid the hinge into the rubber isolator and reinstalled the ribera isolator system to the car in a position to make it higher up... Still too low -_- so after it begun to get dark and cold, I just connected it and left it as it was. It is almost as if the passenger's side tube connecting to the axel back is at a different position / length than the drivers side causing it to be lower... I don't know, I am just frustrated. Any help/ideas would be very helpful. As it stands, this is what it looks like (left side is drivers side, right side is passenger's side)

Looking at your pics, the chamber seems like it's in the same position as the driver side. It almost seems like it's just the exhaust tip that's crooked. Maybe I'm just seeing things. Did you try loosening the overaxle pipe where it connects to the mid pipe like Charlie_santos mentioned?

Oh yeah I see what you mean... I don't know if it was just a weird camera angle that made it look like that or what. I will check tomorrow. And im not too familiar with exhaust systems so which one is the cat back part I should try adjusting?

I mean over axel pipe / mid pipe connection

On the left side of the pic is your overaxle pipes, aptly named because they go over the rear axle haha. The clamps in the center of the pic is where they connect to the mid pipe, usually called an h-pipe or x-pipe depending on the design. Loosen that clamp and you should be able to adjust your overaxle pipes which might help you get your axlebacks aligned.
