You really want to use a solution that does not require you to guess
how much to raise by.
The attached examples give several options.
Note that for internal reasons, \begin{align*} ... \end{align*}
should be replaced by \begin{aligned} ... \end{aligned} inside
a surrounding {equation*} environment, or similar.
---- {align} is too "outer" to work properly when boxed.
You discovered this already, I guess.

\documentclass[12pt,fleqn]{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage[all]{xy}
\begin{document}
\Xy-pic allows for great flixibility in how the equation is aligned.
The main thing though is to adjust the \verb|\displaywidth| with the
equation-display inside a box. Framing is optional, and there are
many different styles of frame that can be used.
\begin{itemize}
\item
$\xy*+!U[F-]\txt{% aligns a the top
\setlength{\displaywidth}{.5\textwidth}%
\begin{equation*}
y = \int \sin x \,dx + x^{2}
\end{equation*}
}\endxy$
aligned at the top
\item
$\xy*+!C[F=]\txt{% aligns in the centre
\setlength{\displaywidth}{.5\textwidth}%
\begin{equation*}
y = \int \sin x \,dx + x^{2}
\end{equation*}
}\endxy$
aligned in the centre
\item
$\xy*+!D[F.]\txt{% aligns at the bottom
\setlength{\displaywidth}{.5\textwidth}%
\begin{equation*}
y = \int \sin x \,dx + x^{2}
\end{equation*}
}\endxy$
aligned at the bottom
\item
$\xy*+!C[F=]\txt{{% aligns in the centre
\setlength{\displaywidth}{.5\textwidth}%
\begin{equation*}
\begin{aligned}
y &= \int \sin x \,dx \cr
&\qquad{} + x^{2}
\end{aligned}
\end{equation*}
}}\endxy$
multiline environments require an extra set of \verb|{...}| to shield the \verb|&| characters.
\end{itemize}
You don't need to use \Xy-pic; a simple \verb|\framebox| will do\dots
\begin{itemize}
\item \framebox{% aligns in the centre
\setlength{\displaywidth}{.5\textwidth}%
\begin{equation*}
y = \int \sin x \,dx + x^{2}
\end{equation*}
} \dots but then there is no easy control over the vertical alignment.
\item \framebox{% aligns in the centre
\setlength{\displaywidth}{.5\textwidth}%
\begin{equation*}
\begin{aligned}
y &= \int \sin x \,dx \\
&\qquad{} + x^{2}
\end{aligned}
\end{equation*}}
\end{itemize}
\end{document}
