Default borla gen 4 header

So I just installed these headers in a few days ago, and I used all the original bolts... most of it was rusted to hell, but I had it soak in some rust eater and that cleaned them up pretty good.

The problem is, the header seemed to be too short to reach the 1st cat. So we had to shift the header over a little, but one of the studs popped out before we started the shift. So once we got the header on the 1st cat the stud wouldn't go back into it's place. It was about 1/4in off. So we decided to just leave it off.

Do you guys know of anyways that I could possibly fix this problem? Since for the first 20 minutes of driving or so the car makes a "SHHHH" sound, obviously from a leak. Would this leak be doing damage? Is that even a leak since I've driven the car maybe only 20 miles at most? I have no CEL, so it can't be that bad right?

Give it a little time the header & exhaust should loosen up and fit better.

Try putting the bolt back in later. Use a prybar or something to get things lined up if need be.
