Loosen the nuts and bolts that secure the y-pipe to the exhaust manifolds. With the slack gained by doing so, you can now move the y-pipe flange around just enough to be able to seat it properly to the exhaust inlet to the turbo and tighten up your clamp.

i tryed loosening everything, y pipe bolts, turbo bolts & the clamp from the turbo to the down pipe there's not much play in the y pipe is there any mounting brackets on it? i can pry it into place but it pops right back out & the only place to put the pry bar is where the clamp goes

If you can pry it into place, I would suggest having an assistant hold it in place while you tighten the clamp. Just be certain that the two flanges ARE properly seated before tightening it. Once tightened, tighten everything else back up.
