Default Need some clarification/tips on LIM

I'm going to be tackling the LIM next week along with the valve covers and plugs/wires. I got some threadlocker at the parts store. Should I be using it on any other bolts besides the LIM, like for the valve covers? Is there a certain RTV I should get? I was going to get a small tube of the black RTV since it was the only small one they had and I don't figure I will need much.

I think I'm all set otherwise. I'll be taking pictures and bagging parts, so hopefully it goes smoothly!

Everything should be covered in the LIM write up in tech info. I never used thread lock, just torque to the correct point and your good.
