ZZP LT Collector Symmetry Question w/photo

I just opened my new ZZP LT that I bought as my Christmas present. While, I'm admittedly no expert, the symmetry of the collector bothers me. I've looked at other pictures for reference and this one seems way off. Please let me know if this is an issue or not before I install it. Thanks!

It should be fine. If one of them were actually bent in and restricted the air flow then it would be something that may change the performance.

Okay, I just wanted to make sure because it didn't look much better than the $150 Bad Mab header and I thought it should for the price difference.

Bad Mab header received in the mail . . .

It will be fine. The 0TTP LT header is better designed at this point because they have a true collector funnel installed between the four ports.

But I think the ZZP LT is better in the sense that it has matched the primaries to the firing order of the engine to the collector.

The LSJ firing order is 1, 3, 4, 2. So the exhaust pulses are hitting the collector in a circular pattern which is supposed to decrease turbulance and improve scalavaging as it "spins" or creates a tornado effect into the rest of the exhaust system.

Why does this picture look like it could be on the turbonator (Now the "Vortec Cyclone") website

Edit: I suppose I should probably add that this post is dripping with sarcasm.
