Rad torque plate
what do you guys use to install this? Just the screws or do you apply some kind of seal on the head?

I know with the manifold its just the screws so the spacer shouldnt make a difference.

I think what he was asking what do you seal the plate with or do you just install it with the longer bolts.
Best to get some exhaust sealant stuff just to be sure or i have found Adhesive Sikaflex to work pretty well.

We use silicone sealer but as the surfaces are so flat 99.9% is squeezed out and the .1 just takes up any pits in the J pipe. We have never seen a leak on a stock exhaust manifold to the head nor once a Rad 4 Torque plate has been installed.
