Up Pipe Leak

Well I got a call from the Transmition shop today. When he took the tranny out, he noticed that my up pipe on the passenger side is leaking. Which is putting soot all over the top of the tranny, which could have caused the high temps.

So to night(while the trans was out) I tried to take it apart and see what the problem was. Well after getting in there I think I caused the leak when I put in the new down pipe.

While I was able to get the clamp off, the pipe is wedged in there good. I have to take off the turbo, or the manifold to completely remove it.
While examining the gasket, I noticed that it looked fine. No burn marks or any thing.

Well as the time was short and I had to go to let the shop close, I just put things back together.

Is it possible, that I just moved the up pipe while installing the downpipe, and I could have cured the problem by reseting everything? Or is this a problem with these trucks?

Well, any input will be helpfull. Thanks. If I can jump on this first thing in the AM. then I can do it with out the tranny in place.

I'd just put some new uppipe donuts in it while the tranny is out. I seriously doubt you could've done it when putting in the downpipe.
