Wasnt locktite used at the factory? if so it didnot sound like it helped
Like Chris said has anybody ever herd of an ARP nut coming off ?
I spoke with ARP last week they recommend there lube for both
methods.But using locktite is a smart saftey net for the torque turn method with stock bolts. Palmer

I've built / modified a lot of different types of engines in last 30 yrs and I never heard of or had been reccomended to put Loctite red on the rod bolts. Guess what?? I will now.

Besides this build, my drag Harley is the next most time consuming and costly to do. I cannot afford a mistake from a techincal or parts standpoint.

I'm thinking out of the box more on this build because Porsche engineering is so precise compared to other types of engines. In most circumstances for other engine builds you usually throw most everything away execpt the block, maybe the head castings and start fresh.

These engines are so well thought out and (for the most part) have very good quaility components in there from the beginning so the focus is more on using whats there already and working with it.

Just buy some good aftermarket rod bolts instead of doing something half a$$ed like putting locktite on the threads of an OEM set.
