exhaust band clamp

Does anyone know how tight to tighten the band clamp from the turbo to the down pipe? My exhaust seems loose, it wiggles at the turbo, and there is some soot also.( I never had it apart).Thanks!

I replaced my exhaust yesterday (04 F250 6.0L stock to MBRP 4" turbo back). The clamp was originally tight as not to allow any movement. As a matter of fact it was kind of a pain in the arse to get loose. When I replaced the down pipe I torqued the band clamp tight. No movement and positively no leaking.

i would tighten it down until it dont wiggle around anymore, but make sure your pipe is seated correctly and tighten her down.

When I put my exhaust on I tightened it to about 10ft/lbs then got under the truck and wiggled the downpipe. That seated it and I tightened it the rest of the way. I didn't use a torque wrench...

I'd say tighten to about half a grunt.

Your grunts may vary.

Thanks guys!, mine WAS loose,the pipe wiggled and you could almost loosen the nut with your fingers.Surprised it didn't fall off. No wonder I was smelling exhaust fumes in the cab.( don't know how it came loose though ).

Hi, I just replaced my exhaust and the clamp was a pain, you just got to get
it squared up to the turbo and hold it tight and tighten the clamp. it works better itf you have someone under the truck to hold the down pipe while you do this.
