Default Torque settings for Downpipe nuts?

What is the torque setting for these M10 fasteners? Will be adding a bit of anti-seize as well.

The Cobb DP from Rally Subaru should be here on Thursday. Early B-day gift

I beleive it's 35ftlbs, but I use 45ftlbs.... Especially for the up pipe, if you are going to do it. You don't want to do it again.

I have a torque wrench built into my elbo. It goes click as well.

Just a note: more than making sure you have the exect torque make sure you tighten down on the bolts equally. Should go aroung a few times until tight.

I guess it is really a moot point as the torque wrench won't fit into the engine bay anyway. Fount this out when I went to get a head start on the installation by removing the heatshield and loosen the bolts.

Even with Liquid Wrench it was a pain to get them loose (guess I should go to the gym or something). Good thing I didn't wait a year before doing this...yeah, that's it..that is why I had to get the Downpipe...before everything has seized together

Now that the tough bolts are loose, the install tomorrow night should go a lot quicker Just hope the courier doesn't crush that box on the way down from Edmonton.

Question: I can reuse the turbo-DP gasket, right?

I've reused them without any problems.
