How to seal K27 adapter? - UPDATED

I've been having a power loss and this weekend discovered my K27 adapter and the pipe above it were lifting slightly causing a boost leak. Can I put some silicone adhesive inside the K27 adapter flange then press it onto the turbo? The way the mounting flange is designed there shouldn't be any way for silicone to get down into the turbo. This connection wasn't a great fit when I got it as the casting on the turbo wasn't perfectly round. I had to do some filing. Thanks.
