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.

Yes

I was searching for the Torque spec since I had my CAC tubes off.

My truck has a weird hot side tube because it had a PTO. I was going to swap it back to a stock tube but the AC lines have been bent to clear the oddball tube and were in the way.

the PTO is on the transmission
I never heard of a different CAC for any thing other than the dual alt units ??

does your truck run a PTO winch or plow or something ??


FYI 9 ft lbs is tighter than you think if your just doing it by feel at least IMO
i put a torque wrench on mine after i blew a turbo boot ( had them apart a zillion times before no issues )
and they were all a few full turns loose
