IDK - that discoloration looks like it is from heat buildup right at the exhaust of the stock muffler? I'm not sure if that is good or not. Why don't you contact Kolpin Support and ask them to have a look at the pic - I would definitely ask about the discoloration. I would want to keep track of the exhaust temp at the engine head pipe, in case that thing is causing back-pressure and additional exhaust heat at the motor. Just my thoughts.
