i have been running my bike since 08 with this dent in the pipe. I also have that little dent you are showing.
I need to get a whole new system.
But i have not had any problems.

I had a long dent with sharp creases on the long sides tried freezing with no end caps twice end caps that came out, then expansion plugs like plumbers use with increasing amounts of water each time, plugs never came out and neither did the dent. As long as there is not a sharp crease freezing it should work fine.
