HELP!!! just installed EGR delete

I just installed a RCD EGR delete kit and when I put the turbo back on the up pipe did not meet flush with the turbo. I was able to get the V clamp on and tighten it down but once I started the truck I heard an exhaust leak. Found it was the up pipe to turbo that was leaking! Has anyone experienced this? I tried prying the up pipe closer and it wont move an inch. How do I fix this and the V clamp shot now, did I stretch it wider? I'm working on this as I type?

Leave the turbo mounting bolts loose and get the up pipe in place 1st then tighten the mounting bolts.

The up pipe Y right where it mounts to the turbo is not flush and I have tighten the heck out of the the V clamp and can not get the leak to go away. I am going to loosen the turbo mount bolts and see if that helps. Thanks
