    Installing Miltek TBE - New Gasket or Use Old?

    Hi All,

    I will be attempting to install the Milltek TBE tomorrow (ceramic coated the dump pipe, home job, and looks awesome!!). My kit did not come with a Turbo outlet gasket. Can I reuse the stock one? if not, are they readily available at exhaust shops?

    Also is there a particular torque value for the bolts on the turbo end or just tighten?

    Thanks. Fingers crossed I wont get a CEL.

    Yes there will be a specific torque value, but I don't know what Audi quote but there are many sources of information out there that can help work out what it should be for the size and type of fixing used. As for a new gasket, for the cost of one which I would assume is relatively small against the hassle of taking the system back off again if it doesn't seal I would buy a new one.

    Well I am still trying to find the adult bit

    Always change the gaskets.....they're cheap,and it's not worth the hassle of taking it all apart again for the sake of a simple gasket.

    I'm doing the install tomorrow morning. Is this something I can pick up from an exhaust shop?
