In order to replace that, drive an easy out into it and turn it out. You should be able to get away with re-doing the installation by tapping the hole further and trying again with a new insert. If it does not fit flush with the head, stop and remove the new one before locking it in place with the TIME-SERT tool.

I will remove it and give it another shot, if the original threads that are tapped into the aluminum head are angled and not straight, will I need to use a big sert? Or could I run the drill bit provided with the kit in there again and retap the threads again straight?
It's entirely possible you could repair it with a BIG-SERT, but you need to be absolutely sure you get it straight, like suggested above. If you do not, then you're in for even more hassle.
