Sealant must be used on intake bolt threads if the threads extend into lifter valley or coolant passage.
NPT/Pipe thread fittings require the use of Teflon tape or paste on threads to ensure proper seal.

Hardened washers Must be used with intake bolts to ensure proper torque and prevent galling of the aluminum.
