Any tips on lining up my new Diamond Eye turbo back?

So I got my new 4" Diamond Eye setup on the truck. I was one of the lucky 6.0 owners that had NO trouble whatsoever getting the new down pipe into place, good. I do however have a couple other issues.

1. The back section of the downpipe rubs on the trans crossmember, anyone else have this problem? Have I just not got the downpipe positioned right? Or spun correctly on the turbo?

2. My tip seems to come out almost right behind my tire, as in a couple inches, but I see all of your kits further out then that, whats the deal there? Should I have cut the center piece longer? Where it is now would contact the axle if I had cut the middle longer?

IDK, truck sounds good, looks great with my 6" polished tip too

I am at work now so no pictures. I highly doubt those pieces are swapped, because the delete piece is flared at both ends, and the extensions are just on one end.

Yeah I cut some off, but not much, I dont think it was more then 8 inches total, maybe more, but like I said, it seems like those pipes shouldn't be the issue, because the pipe that goes over the axle would hit if I moved it any farther back.....I dont know, I am going to work with the tailpipe a little and see what happens, if need be i'll do the BFH mod and make it happen.
