NEVER put the gasket on the turbo...install it in the tube first!



I also bent the bracket so it can not slide off...it need reinforcment, so the bracket sits behind the tube falnge...great idea!
Awesome man glad you got it figured out. Yes gasket into pipe, both gasket and pipe slide onto turbo. Sorry I should have specified. You are gonna love your car once you get the install done and get to drive it with the new turbos. Good luck with rest of install.
