Default Intake bolts for Plastic Manifold

03 PT Turbo, changed plugs today and as of now I am putting the intake on. Do I need to put anti-seize on the five intake bolts. Before I just cleaned them up and installed

It won't hurt, but you are only putting about 8 ft-lbs torque on them. It is a vacuum seal and not holding back pressure so the most important thing to do is to tighten them in sequence with equal torque and don't over torque them. The brass fittings in the lower plenum are press-in fittings and will strip and spin if you over torque them.
