FAQ Tip Clamp Installation - Anti-Seize
I know this owners group is very likely familiar with this copper or nickel based wonder compound, but for those that are getting ready to install their systems, grab that anti-seize because you'll need it for the threads on the tip clamps! Just a little dab or brush. My Pro Tip: Loosen the clamp and put a dab just below the upper barrel nut, and then work the Anti-seize through to make sure everything is good and ready for install.


Unlike the clamps on the pipes (60lb ft of torque), the tips clamps are going to be 18-20lb ft. We generally go by feel.

Felpro C5A is the best copper based anti seize I have used, in my toolbox last 45 years. Great for any exhaust work!
Don't use nickel anti seize with aluminum, zinc, stainless, or spark plugs. It reacts and prevents removal.
