I have installed a couple of the MBRP setups and they usually go together pretty well for me. Making sure you have full engagement at each joint is key. Also depending on the size of the leak, if its really small it will carbon up quickly and basically seal itself, one small advantage of DI engines... Other than that, thats why I say I usually spend more time making sure the fitment(including checking leaks) is to my liking than I actually do removing the old one and putting the new one in the car.

I will drive on it for a while and this weekend I will check again for leaks. If it is still there I will try to get my neighbors air powered impact and torque the band clamps down.

Shouldn't really need anymore torque than your electric impact...or honestly even just using a ratchet should be more than sufficient. Just be careful not to strip the bolts.

Tightening down too much on those clamps will actually bend the pipes as well. So if you had a leak before, it can possibly make it worse. They shouldn't be tightened more than you can tighten it with a ratchet in your hand.

Ok I'll take another look at the whole system and hopefully I find what's wrong. Thanks for your help
