Up pipe collector prob need advice

I am working on getting the collector clamped back to the turbo but i can not get it on right and clamp it. I know they are a pain to get them clamped but does anyone have any tricks or suggestions on how to get it clamped right the clamp seems to tight to be able to get tbe bolt through the clamp and then tighten the nut.
Thanks!

Boar, just installed up pipe gaskets 2 weeks ago. Keep the collector loose behind turbo, align turbo, then tighten the bolts. The bolts on the p/s collector, CAN be reached at thru the bottom ,and thru the fron of turbo, with a 1/4in rachet and i think a 3in entention and/or deep socket, with a universal.
