Those were a problem when i installed my first o/r X-pipe a while back. That dowel prevented the manifold to mid pipe from forming a good seal. I ended up getting a Dremel with a tungsten carbide bit and just made the necessary adjustments.

I trimmed down the metal on the flange so the dowel could sink inside of it instead of hitting it.

Mine was just like yours. I trimed about 1/8 off the pipe mine hasent leaked but I still might buy the adapter from UPR or go to a muffler shop and have them make one. I think trimmimg might of caused the inside of the U on the pipe to sit on the kmember or mabe all the U pipes on the On3 touch. In your pic it looks like your as far in as you can go with out trimming or adding a adaper pipe. im talking about the bottom of the pipe right above the dowel in your pic .

I would recommend the exhaust reducer piece fro UPR, I was gonna cut mine down as some do but think I'm gonna use the reducer so I get the piping as far away from the K and a arms as I can

is the reducer just a cone pipe? i'm on the hunt now for a round doughnut gasket that will work. the thing is what ive seen so far is the doughnuts are too thick and might push the pipe too far back.

i replaced the studs with bolts already so i don't really have that issue. having a gasket would insure no leaks and i''m all about that. i'm not sure how well the cone will act as a gasket.

its really no different then a ball and socket joint. thats how most cat back exhaust systems are bolted on. if you make it tight it wont leak! lol

but if you replaced the bolts with studs(w/out spacers) then i wouldn't worry about it cause, the spacers that were on the old studs were the issue, because it wouldn't allow you to draw the 2 pipes together tight enough.
