    Welcome to the world of physics. Yes its perfectly normal for heat to expand objects. Easily seen on exhausts
    Its a jam thing

    its just metal expansion, thats why you have the flex bit infront of your cat, so it doesnt crack your exhaust!

    This is the same way thay bolts, pins etc can be removed using heat!
