GHL Headers w/heat install question

I've searched the posts and can't find quite what I'm looking for...and it's probably because this is a stupid question but here it goes. Just got my GHL exhaust system in w/heat and I'm trying to make sense of something before putting it on. There is a pipe that connects the two headers together that leads to the turbo (see pics). One end is female and one end is male. There are no slots in the female end where a hose clamp could be used to "crimp" the connection- and there was no hose clamp included for such a crimp. When pushed together the fit is snug but you can rotate the two headers. There were no instructions included in the kit- but the folks at Pelican lead me to believe this was a bolt-on installation with no welding required. I just can't figure how a loose connection like this would not lead to exhaust leaks. Am I missing something here? Thanks in advance for your response.
