Flange clamp sealer

I was just curious if anyone knew of a 3 or 4 point clamp that would bolt on around the current 2 point stock flange? Because where my flex pipe bolts into the straight pipe I have a leak an it's like I can't get my bolts tight enough to seal on the flange.. Anyone have an idea?

this is the section where a "cat back" exhaust would bolt to on the focus right? the end of the flex pipe?

have you tried putting a new gasket on it?

if it's the one where the cat bolts to, there's a donut in there that needs to be changed out if it leaks.
