Hey guys what pipes are you using? I have noticed the only way that I have been able to get my DDM pipes to not loosen is to tighten them to the factory torque (Which scares the heck out of me every time cause of the fear of stripping the head) and then adding some sealant on the outside of the screw to insure myself at a glance they have not backed out.
When tightening them to the factory spec it is dang tight.

No, you don't need anything special, just a cheap torque wrench and the conversion calculator and you can change whatever type you have to the kg cm on the chart.

The specific torque may be different but thats ok as long as its on the chart. I take my Lb-in and convert it to the kg-cm and use it. You will be surprised how the screw digs into the DDM pipe hole.

This is what to look for at any store that carries them.

I will get a photo of the set up and adapters I use later today also the picture of the screw in the DDM pipe for comparison.:)
