Well, they don't look like they are that lined up anyways. So it wouldn't affect performance even if they did. But no, it shouldn't. Aluminums general melting point is 660 degrees celcius, Steel is around 1400-1500 celcius depending on the type.

I would get a piece of tube welded onto the intake mani side. Or, get a flange fabbed up to fit the itb's properly.
