It looks bent just a tad. Did you buy this used or new?

Bought it used, on my old ae86 before I got the same problem with the HKS sport, but they are the different one.

It is the same thing when the car on the ground, I think it was bent by the pervious owner if it's not the original shape.

You should be able to adjust the exhaust by loosening the bolts that hold it to the midsection and header, adjusting it, then retightening them. Worst case you can bend the hanger that supports the muffler just a little bit.

Took the muffler off today, it's so firm. I have no ideas to make it back to straight, end up put it back on :(

The muffler definitely looks a little tweaked in the first pic. The tail pipe should also line up with the center of the cutout on the bumper :(
