New exhaust system install - "I'm going in!"

SSI system by RarlyL8 was delivered this week. Phase I is completed. I got the old exchanger nuts off without much difficulty; no broken studs. I've been soaking them with Kroil once per week for the last 3 weeks. Used MAPP torch to heat them cherry red and most of them came right off. About half of them came out with the stud. I am prepared with new studs.

Question: should I use anything on the new stud threads? Anti-Seize? Loctite?

I hope to get the entire job done along with K27 install over the long weekend. Please send me positive 930 vibes

I'll post some pics once things get interesting.
