Torque specs have a dry, wet and PTFE scales. If you use anti-seize, use the wet scale. Simple enough.

Lots of people saying they put these together dry yet not a lot of talk (now there will be) of taking them apart.

Of course you can put bolts in dry and w/o anti-seize, but that's not the point of anti-seize. The point of anti-seize is in the event you ever need to remove the bolts.



Introducing numerous high heat cycles to two different metals torqued together is a recipe for seizing, galling, cold welding, and heat freezing. This can become a huge nightmare if you ever need to disassemble. However, if you're 100% sure that you'll never need to undo what you torqued, then go dry if you want.


Using anti-seize is working smart, and to adjust for the extra lubricity simply reduce the torque specs by 20-25%.

I haven't used anything and have removed my headers quite a few times.

Over what period of time?

My car has 9k miles on it, started modding it at around 6-7 miles back in early 2018, throughout that year til now i've removed my headers about 2-3 times, for cam install, heads install and now removing the motor from my car to install forged internals and go boosted.

You don't need anti seize, I had headers on my fourth gen forever, they came right off, steal bolt, aluminum head, normally will not stick to one another.

Thank you for the advice/suggestions.
I decided to go in dry and use the bolt locks that came with the Kooks...looks like it will do the trick should the bolts decide to back out.

Google "broken header bolt".
