Here are some pics that show it perfectly. This is a brand new OEM gasket.



This is the VF39 turbo. Notice the gasket opening is larger than the turbo flange ensuring a good seal.



Now the TD04. Notice in the bottom right corner that the turbo flange is larger than the gasket opening and if that pinched steel ring doesn't get crushed just right you will have a small leak.
