Seems like there has to be something in there, I would say take off the clamp and check all the way around for something in the way. Mine has a little tab at the top to help hold it together, did that get bent? Does the pipe line up properly?

Yeah, loosen the clamps and also loosen the turbo mounting bolts and see if the turbo moves a little. Reinstall the new "y" pipe clamp and see if everything lines up, tighten the turbo mounting bolts and then the clamps. All should be good.

When I did mine, I had the same problem. Loosened the passenger and driverside exhause manifold bolts, to the up pipes, to give enough play in the y-pipe at the turbo. Be careful with the y-pipe. I messed with mine so much I think I made the pin hole a major leak. No exhause leak before break down, major leak once back together. Replaced the y-pipe and everything is great. The driver side exhaust manifold bolts are a pain!

I had the same problem with mine and I finally took the mounting bolts out of the turbo and bolted the y-pipe up. Then bolted the turbo up and no leaks!

take 2 minutes to take your driver side fender well out and ur pain becomes easy.
