Should I use anti sieze on intake manifold bolts?
I usually don't. The torque spec is only like 25lbs.
Ok. The reason I ask is because when I took off the the lower the passenger side bolts were like finger tight
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.
Ok so no to loctite but possibly yes to anti seize?
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.
sounds like a plan
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.
I always used a little oil. Maybe next time ill use anti-seize
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.
