don't know about the tq specs.. but when I done mine I had a hard time getting the down pipe pushed up into the engine compartment.... the only way I was able to get it put in was with a ratchet strap... I had to put it on the transmission to pull it over a 1/4 or 1/2 of a inch to make it go with no problem.... once I did that it was nothing.... good luck

i did that dont seem to feel any but would it be possible to put some soapy water on there to see if it bubbles? also is it loud in the cab and can feel the vibration for you as well?

it is normal. if you have any leaks you will know within a short amount of drive time. just look for little black streaks around the slip joints. if its leaking it will show up!
