Angry up pipe leak

i just replaced my up pipe gaskets with some carquest brand ones and i still have a leak. i tightened the bolts down as hard as i could. is there a way to tighten them without pulling the turbo again and also is this why my boost is reading way lower than usual and drops instantly when i let out of it? thanks for any help

Your boost being low sounds like something is leaking check anything you unbolted and retighten.

If they leak, you did not tighten them enough. I have over 50psi of backpressure and there are no signs of leaks for the last 6 months. I have put these in a few trucks now without any problems.


They should be grey/silver. They are graphite. I have not seen the white ones before.
