Default Mid-Pipe not fitting correctly??

Hello. I have a 2007 wrx. I recently bought a used magnaflow catback exhaust. i am running a hks downpipe atm. When I installed the catback, the mid pipe was resting underneath he car and it seems like the mid pipe needs to be bent. The whole car vibrates due to this. The mid pipe is 3" and has a flew right before the down pipe flange. Should I try bending the pipe or denting it or what?

hks down pipe works great for an externial waste gate, but will not work as good on a internial waste gate because of the way they are made. The mid pipe doesnt look like it has enough of a bend if you know how to weld then fix it your self not worth paying someone to fix, you will spend to much money for someone else to do this. Cheaper to buy a better one already to the correct shape.

yeah...they are great right up to the time they rust through and fall apart

and that pipe may just need a non n0000b to fit it

Doesn't look like its made for it. Try going with a whole turboback system, that way you know every piece fits. I have a Tanabe downpipe and a blitz turbo back. Coincidently fit perfectly.
