Turbo alignment issue

I put a BPD EGR Cooler in, after removing the EGR Delete kit, and can not get the "Y" pipe to align properly. I have used a ratchet strap, long crow bar and sledge and cannot get this thing to align properly. Any suggestions or secrets you know to get this thing aligned?

Loosen the up-pipes at the manifold to give you as much wiggle room as you need.

I have also loosened the turbo from the pedestal and lifted the turbo just a little bit to get it to line up...got the clamp on and tightened it just enough to keep the pipe in the flange and lowered the turbo down...then tightened the clamp all the way.

I had the Turbo unbolted from the pedestal, and no clamps on anywhere. when the Turbo slides into place on the pedestal, the "Y" pipe is forward by 3/8" and down by 1/4".

Can you get your bolts in on the turbo mount? Sounds like the turbo is not seated all the way down because with turbo mounted the y pipe should line up. Fwiw, my turbo gets caught with sound proofing sometimes causing it not to seat correctly. I would loosen the manifold to where the up pipes bolts up to the manifold and start the bolts to the turbo mount then try hooking up the y pipe after that the down pipe and then tighten the mount bolts. Keep us posted.

Sometimes you have to walk away for a couple of minutes then come back then everything comes together. Idk why, I just know it works for me.

LOL I know the feeling. I walked away several times yesterday. Retried it several times, and still cannot get it lined up. I looked at maybe trying to remove the pedestal bolts or maybe the "Y" pipe mounting bolts down by the exhaust manifold.

Loosen the up pipe bolts and you should be able to pull the y-pipe towards you and you will feel it sit in the turbo flange. Tighten the clamp
