The exhaust slut has spoken!

I agree, they had to get creative a little bit right there because the shape coming off of a flange is not round, but rather oval. The good part is that the ID of the welded piece is the same as the ID of the pipe downstream. It means that although there could be some turbulence going on at that connection - it is not a choke by any means.
