03 Turbo Swap Question

Getting ready to swap the turbo out on my 04. Anybody know what the torque specs are for the pedestal to block and turbo to pedestal? Any help will be appreciated.

don't know the spect accrding to the book, but as these bolts don't create a seal or hold pressure, so "good and tight" is what I go with.

I have a friend who's been a mechanic for years and as he puts it "it doesnt hold the vehicle together." Of course, every bolt holds the vehicle together, but the point is that bolts hat create a seal or hold pressure (head bolts, exhaust bolts, water pump bolts, etc) the torque spec is important, other bolts (turbo pedestal for instance) as long as they are not going to come loose they are fine.

Very true, if not tight enough, you can always go tighter after a short break in and heat expansion. If you go too tight from the get go and strip it or snap a bolt..... its hard on your head

I just snugged it then gave it one extra crank. No need to go crazy tightening it.
