I used some RTV on the insides of my elbow when putting my engine together. It seems to help. Mine was pretty cracked.

You could spend a couple hundred and go the samco route, but it's too expensive...

Screw that, just make a custom metal elbow, and attach it to the turbo inlet with a silicone coupler.
