I see what your saying, I searched the manual and couldn't find a torque speck for the studs either. If it were me I would use some high temp Loctight and put about 10 to 13 lbs on them. I would say Garth would have the right answer.

Its going to get tightened more when you go to put the nut on so I'd say just really give it a good snug and it will be fine.

Thats what I have always done on exhaust studs on autos and figured you cant go wrong by tightening them slightly less that the nut. From reading your posts I thought you prolly replaced your fair share of them.

i have done quite a few on cars, but not on the ten. i would not normally care to much, but the turbo is going to be hanging off the studs, and that is a ton more weight than the normal exhaust, i though it should be on the tight side. i guess i will go with a few lbs more than the nut specs. thanks guys

yeah, are you running studs or bolts into the head??? they can only go so far before bottoming out so just check your measurements.

no, i just replaced the studs with longer ones so they would clear the bracket.
