Default TD04-16G V-Band Clamp Torque

So, I clocked my TD04-16G. Now, I'm retightening the V-bank clamp that attaches the exhaust housing to the center section. Is there a torque value or some kind of procedure I should use to do this properly? Couldn't find anything on a search.

I've never actually used a torque wrench on one. I just go a turn or two past the point where the the housing and chra are fully seated. I'm not sure you could actually overtighten this...the only thing you'll do is strip the bolt on the v-band.

^ I agree. I've always treated my DSM turbos the same way. Tight plus maybe another turn
