Have you loosened the bolts around the Doughnuts,might need a little more room for it to twist.I just put mine back on this past weekend,it wasnt much fun either.

if you can look with the turbo sitting in place how close it is to lining up. if its close you can unbolt the turbo and put the exhaust on first(dont tighten clamp the whole way til turbo is tight) and then pull on the turbo and bolt the turbo done first. I have done this before. just make sure its close or this wont work

Loosen up the clamp and tap it around a bunch of times. If it's able to move keep taping the end that has slack around until you get it all loose. If not take a flat head screw driver and pry it little by little until you have enough space to slide it off. It can be a slow process if you don't have spare parts.
