Exclamation severe problems installing new turbo

I am doing a turbo replacement on my truck. I got a schwitzer turbo made by borgwarner. The guy at a injection shop said that it was an identical match. Well Im trying to reconnect the exhaust side of the turbo, and the flange that connects the pipes from exhaust manifolds to the turbo will not line up. I cant figure out why its not mating to the turbo. there is a gap in the bottom of flange and the pipes from the exhaust manifolds are hitting the block. is there some way around this or what do i need to do?
