Re: Disappointed in my new 38r
What I did was put the pedestal bolts in loosely, so the turbo would still move around on the pedestal. Then I tightened the V-band clamp from the collector to the turbo so it would pull the two together. After that, I tightened the pedestal bolts.
If that does not work, then loosen the up-pipes at the collector and manifolds if needed to adjust the collector location.
