I think I know what's holding you up if you haven't figured it out yet. Work on getting the BOV and throttle body hoses lined up first. Then when you are working on the part of the Y pipe that attaches to the turbo, stop. Now look at the pipe. The pipe is a smooth piece that goes under the intercooler. You should see the accordian section where it curves. You should also see a nub that sticks out all by itself. This nub is what you need to pry on. Get a long screwdriver/jackhandle/broom handle and use it to pry on the nub to move the Y pipe over the turbo outlet. You might use the throttle body hose as a fulcrum point. Once the hose is close to the turbo, you may have to use a hand to align the hose properly and the other hand to pry the hose over the outlet. That nub you see is your life saver. Silicone hoses don't have it and can actually be a bigger paint to put back on.

Unbolt the 4 bolts between the y pipe and tmic. Put the pipe on the turbo and then bolt on the TMIC.

i've tried that and i broke my screwdriver and my check engine light came on while i was driving. i think the hose came off or something. i'll try again tomorrow. i can't put my hand in there at all.

I do the same thing but with a thick piece of wire. That nub holds it in place well. It you dont wanna fulcrum off the TB hose, you could try this. Or even both if you have two people.
