I did the same thing on mine, only it was my cleaner that took what was suppose to be a "sharpie." What I end up doing was continually turning the unsion ring and moving the vanes until I got both side to line up. I actually had to stop drinking a few ****tails and walk away about 5 times. Fortunately, I took a picture beforehand so I had at least something to go off of. It only fits one way, I just resorted to the scientific movement of the unison ring and vane position along with the solenoid until it lined up. Probably not the most helpful response, but it worked for me.

Here is a pic of my powermax when I marked it to separate it. Should look the same as the stock turbo if this helps
