The easiest way to do it is to loosen up the 2 uppipes at the exhaust manifolds and then line up the Ypipe to turbo. Make sure it sits in there perfectly before tightening clamp, Ypipe should always be hooked up before any bolts or pipes are hooked up. the last thing you do is tighten the uppipes to manifolds.

I loosen everything like Bob said. Loosen the up-pipes at the exhaust manifolds, loosen the y-pipe connection at the turbo, loosen the down pipe at the turbo, and loosen the turbo mount bolts.

The first connection you should tighten is the y-pipe to turbo, this is always the one that leaks after an EGR delete. Get that seated first. Then tighten the up-pipes to the manifolds. Then tighten the down pipe, then lastly tighten the turbo mount bolts. Works every time.
