Tricks or tips to get the exhaust y pipe to line up to the turbo

So i just replaced the EGR and oil cooler in my 05 f350. Got it all back together and i have aloud whistle that gets worse when you accelerate other than that the trucks runs and sound great. After reading many posts it confirmed what i thought it was the y pipe to the turbo leak. When i removed the turbo there was a small soot patch from it leaking before. SO i went and purchased a new clamp for the install.

So the leak is still there only worse. Does anyone have any advice or tips on how to align the turbo and y pipe. Thank you any help is appreciated.

I had the exact same problem when doing my egr delete. take the nuts and bolts loose from where the y pipes connect to the manifolds, then line up and snug down the y pipe to the turbo, then tighten up the manifold to y pipe bolts. its a pain in the a$$ to get to the manifold bolts on the drivers side, on the pass. side just remove the inner fender. You'll probably need another guy to help.

They can be a PIA. Sometimes I swear I spend as much time chasing a leak as the repair took and other times it will all just fall in place. That is one of the few times you wish you were working on a van!

What I did was super easy and can be done with 1 person. I just used a pull strap and hook 1 end hook to the Y pipe and the other hook to the front horse collar. Then I just pulled the strap tight and it pulled the Y pipe right up tight to the turbo. Super easy and Ive done it a few times with no problems...

pull/ratchet strap works great. i had the same problem when i did a turbo cleaning. put the ratchet strap around the ypipe, laid a towel over the top of the passenger fender and went down to the passenger front whell with the other end. easy.
