Default is there any way that i can bend a bent manifold back to its original position?

as above..
i had a little knock at the exhaust area and my exhaust hook came loose..
so as my exhaust is loosly hanging, i realize that my manifold is not in its original shape anymore..

so is there anyway i can bend it back?
i am still new to this hobby, so i would need some advice

thanks!

Default Manifold "Shaping"

If not Kinked, use a Cigarette Lighter set on High Flame to heat the metal where you want it to bend.
Use something that fits inside the end of the Header (Pipe end)and Bend GENTLY while heating. It should go back pretty close to it's original position.
