Intercooler duct clamp torque??

Anybody know the torque value for the intercooler clamps? Noticed the passenger side was about off after I removed the pipe to install my coolant filter several months back. Glad I looked at it again today!! Looking for the value of the one at the cooler. I've seen 60 in. pounds somewhere but I can't put my hands on it.

UUUUH, really?? 9 INCH pounds is only 0.75 foot pounds. That's about finger tight...at best.

I found on another site a tech posted the OEM "T" style clamps (w/o springs) are 80 in/lbs (6.67 ft/lbs) and the OEM constant pressure clamps (with springs) are 60 to 75 inch pounds (5-6.25 ft/lbs). Took them off and cleaned the entire boot in brake cleaner as well as inlet tube and got it back on. For now.....

Ordered Diesel Site's heavy duty RUBBER boots for the ole' girl. Will have them on Tuesday!!

Sorry bout that I could not remember if it was ft/lbs or not. When the guy I talked to told me he did say two different numbers, so I take it now as he said 9 ft/lbs and ? in/lbs. I know it didnt feel like very much, cause when I started getting tight the clamps wanted to come off of the boot. Forgive me for the mistake as I was dog *** tired from changing out my busted radiator and doing a coolant flush and switch.
