turbo clamp seal ?

intercooler pipes connect to turbo with a hose type clamp that has three metal square inserts that fit this connection. Is there supposed to be a seal or gasket under this? I can hear air leaking with my leak detector/compresser hooked to the intake. My 6.0 had a t clamp here, I am new to the 7.3 . thanks

Well its actually where the intake manifold clamps to the turbo. I think the o ring is supposed to seal it ?

Yes, there is an O Ring on the turbo that suppose to seal that connection. O Ring is probably bad.

thanks, it seems the spyder housing and the compressor housing were not lining up good and flush. I removed the int. boots and cleaned them , and was able to get the housing flanges mated up better with the boots off.

usually on these, i have the spider boot clamps all loose, then mate the spider to the turbo, tighten up that connection, then slide the boots into position, then tighten up the boot clamps

the richest ones are not those who have the most, but those who need the least

yep, i think that gives more spider movement to position the flanges of both...
