Turbo question

As soon as all my parts get here I will be installing the RiffRaff CCK and WW.
I also plan to do up pipes as they are leaking like crazy. While I've got it open, I am going to do the .50 mod and retorque under the valve covers, as well as foil delete. I figure I will need to pull the turbo to do the up pipes so I may as well do an O-ring kit and do it right.
My question is.........Should I replace the turbo bolts just as a matter of course, and what, if any, locktite should I use?

I don't think you need new bolts. I reused mine last year, and it's been leak-free all this time. And I didn't use any Loctite on the two hold-down bolts. Just on the housing bolts. Blue on the compressor side, and red on the exhaust side.

You probably know this but with the foil delete you are going to hear turbo whistle in the cab. Along with the 6637 mod it is probably going to be noisy.
