Exhaust leaf after Oil Cooler change

Just changed my oil cooler and now I have an exhaust leak at the turbo inlet. Is there supposed to be a gasket or does the clamp supposed to seal it up?

If your talking about where the y-pipe connects, there isn't a gasket, the misconception is that the clamp can be used to pull it in alignment. It should fit up evenly all around prior to tightening the clamp. If you start the turbo mounting bolts then align the pipe up, tighten the clamps, then snug up the mounting bolt, you shouldn't have a leak.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

take the band clamp back off or loose and see if it the y pipe is seated. there is no gasket. i dont have a very good pic on my phone but yo u can see that lip on the y pipe that sticks down in the center, seats into the turbo. it will fall in when it is lined up. easiest way is to get a pry bar and push and pry on it. should be fairly easy
