Default I scraped my car in a parking lot... Exhaust messed up

Today, while pulling out of a notoriously bad parking lot for lowered cars, I scraped really bad. I thought nothing of it, as it had happened before, and continued driving.

When I got back to my car later, I found the exhaust was very loud and had a lot more rumble to it. I'm pretty sure the scrape actually partially detached my left header. It got louder and louder on the way home, and then finally started to pop a bit right as I got home. I think I'm going to get up on some jack stands to see better under there, and see if the header bolts can just be tightened up, or if it ripped through anywhere.

Should I torque the header bolts to a specific number, or just tighten them up?

EDIT: Just kidding. I'm dumb. It's just at the catback . It just sounded like it was left-front when we were listening this afternoon. I'm going to end up taking it to a shop because my dad and I don't have a lift/enough strength to have enough room and tighten those bolts enough under the car.
