Maybe dum question: I have the torque specs for the UP/DP to turbo connections, but are there any heating/tightening cycles that need to happen. I'm assuming antisieze on all the bolts/studs.
It's always the little things that make or break my installs... but if all goes well I'll be opening it up on the autobahn by spring.
Just tighten the nut's on the turbo, I have had mine off/on a few times and never torqued anything, just make sure they are tight. Don't over thing this, you can get much leverage in there anyways.
It you have a small exhaust leak just go back and snug things up.
