We re-designed that adapter due to fitment issues from the various suppliers that I used to use.
To do it right you need to remove the adapter, smooth out the turbo outlet housing and replace the 2 O-rings. It should be a very tight fit when complete. The outlet lip on the turbo capture the O-ring completely. Be methodical and lube with oil or risk slicing the lower O-ring. Porsche used a glue on there adapters back in the 80's and 90's that seemed to work very well.
