Spring TBOLT Clamp Torque

I searched and couldnt find, what is the proper torque settings for the clamps that go on the boots between the charge pipes? Mine keep blowing off, and im scared to torque past specs for tearing, thanks!

I cranked them all the way down. If you tear the boots from that then you need new ones anyways....

Also, take your boots off and clean them in hot soapy water. Clean where they mount to also. Make sure you dry it all really good. Take some hairspray (don't tell your wife - hehe) on a rag and wipe it on the mating surface just before putting them on (this helps them stick under boost). Torque 'em down till they're very tight, and forget about 'em.

Service manual says 11 ft-lbs, but that seems way too tight to me, I stopped at 9 ft-lbs and I've never had a blowoff running tunes. On the other hand, the Banks clamps I have list 75 in-lbs on them, which is significantly less than 11 ft-lbs and they have never blown off either.
