Don't know about the tin, need to see pictures. You can mock it up with a cheap length of radiator hose and then make a decision. The turbo placement should not require trimming the tin. If it does there is an alignment issue somewhere.
Not sure how you did the header install. When I mock-up the SSI system Y-pipe I start by mounting the turbo in place and hooking everything to it and work backwards towards the heat exchangers. Too many things hook to the turbo for it not to be the focal point of proper fitment. Your headers may not have slip joints in places that allow that option.
Ben had some high heat hose and T-band clamps left over from turbo work he was doing. You might shoot him an e-mail.
