Torque setting for exhaust pipes

Recommended Posts

Apologize in advance because I know this was posted but I've searched and can't find it.
 
What is the proper torque setting for the bolts attaching the exhaust pipes?
 
Thanks!

If you open this install document (link) from Akrapovic, starting on page 7 it has torque settings.
 
Page:10 Figure: 14 is probably what you're asking for.

FYI If you look up Bolt grades and torque you can find what the torque should be for the bolt, and most the time its close to what the application call for plus or minus a few ft lbs.

I would say most people under torque bolts if you broke the bolt you went over lol

Most torque specs are with 30w oil on the threads, keep that in mind. It will be vastly different if you don't lubricate the threads.

Yep you are correct when you go to ARP they specify that you need to lube the bolts for proper torque they have proof of it.
