I noticed that the intake pipe with the noisemaker on my SHO was very oily/dirty on the outside. I had never noticed that before. My car is GH tuned and has a GH IC. So I figure maybe I've over-boosted that plastic piece. (it would explain some things) Decided to replace it with a PPE noisemaker-delete pipe.

Obviously the installation is straight-forward. Remove old pipe. Install new pipe. My only question is about the bolt-style clamps. I've never used these before. Am I supposed to tighten those to 100%, or maybe just until they're hard to tighten? All the pics I see online look like they're super tightened with a good inch or more of thread outside the clamp. I have an odd fear of over-tightening clamps.

I've done an engine swap before in my old GTP, so I'm not a rookie. But it's been a while, I'm out of practice, and don't feel like breaking anything today.

Thanks for any input!

Don't worry, if you don't tighten it enough the car will definitely let you know quickly that you made a mistake.
