I'm replacing the OMP lines with new ones but I can't seem to find the torque specs for the OMP banjo bolts connecting to the OMP itself. It's not in the engine service manual. Does anyone happen to know what I should torque these to and/or where to look? Thanks.
The perfect race car is the fastest thing on the track and then explodes after crossing the finish line.
The shop manual doesn't seem to have it, I think it assumes the OMP and lines are already together or something. But, the torque values for the OMP injectors are 12-15 foot-pounds, which seems correct to me. It's pretty low torque, just enough to crush the copper crush washer and seal it up. Too much torque and you'd snap the head off the banjo bolt.

I would do as Dale suggested. 12-15ft would be about right. Just look carefully at the washer when it is being crushed just stop and that should do it. But personally I'll do 13ft/lb be in the middle or the torque specs.
But how big is the banjo bolt to the pump itself? The above spec is assuming it is the same size compared to the banjo bolts on the engine side.
hand tighten with a 1/4 inch drive ratchet and you'll be fine. it's pretty hard to overtighten it that way.
exactly. Don't go overboard, because the m6 banjo bolts can easily break or strip in the OMP.
