Your in the right section for an answer. Give it some time. I deleted your duplicate post. Anyone that comes to the forum sees all the new posts, no need to duplicate your efforts.

My question is, do V clamps, or really, any other clamps have a set torque? I've never seen any listed. Doesn't mean their isn't any, but most clamps are done by feel or look.

I'm not going to say it's the correct way but i tighten mine up 'very snug'
No issues so far after 5 or 6 removal and reinstalls.

Thanks OurPTGT for responding. I finnaly have done the same I just thought there might be a specification since it holds the turbo to the manifold.
