Header question

While I was working on the bike yestarday i noticed it looked like the pipe is twisted up at the end right were the two pipes merge before it goes into the tri bolt . Is this normal or is my header k.o.ed?

When I bolted the pipe on last night it didn't look like it was in the right position?

Also if this one is jacked am i better off getting a used stock one or is it worth it to try to track down an aftermarket pipe.

If pipes were taken off hot its possible for them to warp a little. Header pipes are usually pretty stout and shouldn't move too much. If it does look off it very well might be twisted. If it doesn't effect your performance and you can tolerate it, leave it alone. If need be, torch it or look into an aftermarket header( but you'll need to rejet or program depending...)
