CAC boot clamps

Torque specs for CAC tube/boot clamps? Ford F350 Diesel 6.0


Do they even need to be torqued on? Or just hand tighten to the max?

Thank you

i just tighten them down I could find the spec but I never bother i think they may have a stop on them anyway also note the clamp location marks on the hose

Riff Raff may make better ones but OEM has lasted 100,000 miles and my boost is just over 32 psi

This may sound stupid but clean them good plus IC pipes, then if you married steal the wives hair spray. Spray it on the hoses, then tighten them down. Works great.
