I don't think there is a set tension..Just snug enough so no air can escape between the donut and the turbo.

while on the subject, how tight should the two exaust doughnut bolts be?
Just snug 'em up. Make them as tight as you can with your socket wrench. I prefer a 1/2" drive ratchet, the nut on the top closest to the inner side of the swingvalve is a PITA to get on, good luck with that.

With the exhaust manifold bolts, same thing, just make them tight enouugh with a 1/2" drive. Maybe beat on the end with a hammer for another 1/2 turn or so.

------Is it bad if I dont use locktite on my bolts for the exhaust manifold? I have pulled the head twice without using it, and they came right out after some convincing.------

WHAT?!?!?! That's a sure way to snap a stud off in the head.

couldn't agree more Ken. good god, tight as you can go with a half incher, then another 1/2 turn. Hows your 200 ft lbs on tiny little studs?!?!
