Default Exhaust Mani blow by? Whatbare the tq specs?

After putting a new gasket and the turbo exhaust manifold on, I get a ton of blow by.

I'm hopings it's just the fact that I didn't tq them down.

Anybody recall the specs? I presume that no high temp rtv is used in this matter? I may have to level the damn mani.

are you saying you have a leak between the exhaust manifold and head? blow-by is not the correct term here...

I stand corrected. Exhaust leak is what was implied.

Sorry for the possible confusion with headgasket or piston rings.
