    You should use anti-seize anywhere that steel/iron contacts aluminum, at least in a perfect world.

    Are you asking about anti-seize or Loctite?
    If you are thinking about a thread locker, like Loctite, then no, you don't use that on intake bolts.

    Anti-seize would be a good idea as stated before anywhere where steel contacts aluminum. Otherwise, you risk galvanic corrosion due to the dissimilar metals.

    i would...anything I take apart gets re-assy'd with it. I'm always changing up stuff and I know dis-assy is gonna be easy if I use...just personal preference here.

    Yeah, the good thing about anti-seize is that it is formulated to stop the chemical corrosion created by combining stee/iron with aluminum, and unlike oil, it will be there forever, until you take it back apart.

    The bad part is that anti-seize gets on EVERYTHING!
    You will be so perfect with it, and make sure it gets on nothing... and when you look down, it will be on everything. :)
    Your hands, clothes, fender, and anything else in the area.

    It washes up easy though.
