Lining up Turbo Crossover Pipes???

Ok, took off my up pipes and didn't mark them to make sure I got them back on the y pipe. I do not want to try to tighten the top bolts while the y pipe is connected to the turbo. Help please. Thanks.

no need to mark them. They'll only fit one way. But dont re-uset he crush sleeves, get new ones or the felpro chevy ones.

Make sure to test fit before putting on truck get some washers & or 1/4" shorter bolts you may need em.
Hand tighten everything, make top bolts snug not tight, install turbo, torque turbo & attch clamp & tighten. Now tighten all the uppipe bolts.

Thanks. Did it last week and did pretty much what you said. Seemed to work out well. I'll let you know in a year if the flex pipe I welded to them works out.
