Borla Flange

Has anyone else had trouble with a poorly fitting flange on the Borla muffler?

I've had an exhaust leak for a few years and I finally decided to track it down today. First came replacing the exhaust manifold gaskets which went smoothly. That fixed the main noise, however it also revealed a second one.

This time it's coming from the flange between the Y-pipe and the Borla muffler. It just seems like a horrible fit and after playing with it for a few hours I can't seem to get it to mate up any better (probably worse).

Is this a common problem? I haven't heard anyone else complain about it.

Is there a trick? Or maybe something I can put on there to stop the leak.
