Afe downpipe fitment issues

All,

Recently installed afe downpipes and it is both touching the body and the engine. Anyone else have any fitment issues with this piece or is it poor installation?

Make sure to contact aFe power about this. I linked them to this thread for review. It could also be poor installation.

I had to do this because the flanges were warped on my AFE's and they don't carry them anymore so they wanted me to wait a few months for them to re design them...

well after 3 days no response from aFe, and a discussion with shop who installed my downpipes, the fitment is subpar, looks like I will have to look into an alternative.

The solution is to pull them off and hammar them at the witness marks.

the flange from the dp to exhaust does not even align, that is a problem that a hammer cannot fix...
