If you got good T-clamps. I torque mine down to 7ft.lbs.(9.5Nm) to 10ft.lbs.(13.56Nm) Never had a leak over the 35000 miles (56330Km) on my FMIC (RacerX) & I hit 19psi (1.31 bar)peak boost. Had pipes on & off several time for maintenance. Never leaked or damage pipes. You can always start at 5ft.lbs(6.78Nm) & work your way to 10ft.lbs (13.56Nm)
