Default Lim help

I will be replacing the LIM on my 99 Bonneville SSE and have a few questions
Do I need to use blue threadlocker or pipe sealant on the LIM bolts?
if it is pipe sealant can i use what they sell at home depot?
What should i put on the supercharger bolts?
Do I put the RTV only in the top corners of the valley seals and not any underneath?

Thanks for your reply

I've never used pipe sealant on the bolts. I put a dab of RTV in the corner, then put the rubber seals down. then put another dab on top. It'* mainly there to seal the seam between the two different gaskets.
