2014 SRT / Stock Exhaust on Right side only Crimped behind the Cat

This past Monday my neighbor and did an install of the BWOODY CAI.
We jacked the up the jeep and placed jack stand under. We took the front driver side wheel off. Then my neighbor who is a certified mechanic was looking under the Jeep and just observing the how the exhaust set up.
The fist thing he said to me was "What going on w/ this crimp in the exhaust on the left side behind the cat" "This is the factory set up, b/c the right side does not have this at all. So any that has a stock exhaust in their SRT 2014
Jeeps take a look at these two pics and let me know if yours looks the same
As it was pressed / squeezed together in such a way that this was surly done at the factory when being built and then added.

This may be a potential warranty concern / issue but I'd like to hear some of your feed back. This crimp in the exhaust again is NOT from the axle back location. It's in the middle section behind the large cat system.

No problem. Some people believe the SRT engineers compensated for this crimp in the exhaust design... I thought it was better out so I removed it.

LOL, perhaps SRT should have wrote etched on the crimp saying, do not touch!

"SRT Right Side Crimp design approved by SRT Engineering"

The 5.7 engine also gets the crimp. No doubt its the same exhaust system except for the tips.

Are you sure? I would think atleast different suitcase muffler and different mufflers on the rear. (Dunno the proper terms). The piping may be the same but I would think internally there are differences...

Suitcase is a muffler, rears are resonators.

The parts guy at Jeep looked both systems up and he said they were the same part #'s except for the tip difference on the various models. But he could be wrong.
