I did this 2 weeks ago and want to know how tight you guys get the V band clamp on the turbo to down the tips touch, mine arn't touching. I had one clamp put on upside down ( my buddy did this) but it is in the same place it needs to be just upside down. One other problem is there is a bolt on the flange in the rear that I can not get a wrench on to fully tighten it...I have 3" AR and there is not a Way I can see to get that last bolt that is farthest on the passenger side on the flange. I was luck enough to get a socket on one side of the flange on this bolt and tighten it a bit but holding it in place with a wrench/socket from the other side I can not? Anyone have this problem/problems lol!

I think mine may have a small leak.
