Exhaust Leak

I recently pulled the turbo to do some top end work, and now that it is completed I am getting an exhaust leak from the turbo. Does anyone have any tips or tricks on how to align the up pipe and downpipe to the turbo so as to create a good seal? This would be the third time I will be attempting to fix it.

Loosen the up-pipe from the passenger manifold. Attach and tighten up-pipe to turbo, then tighten up-pipe to manifold. Down pipe gets tightened last.
