I ground the threaded section off of both ends of the extension, never-seized the header and slid them on.
Slide it on further than the original, right up to the welds.
No clamps needed.

Much quieter and prettier than the 7 hose clamps and rusty tin the PO had wrapped around the old crossover.
Brilliant!

You should post a pic of that!
