I'm thinking oem spec torque and anti sieze. But i have heard a lot of conflicting opinions about using threadlock and or using less torque becouse of the titanium.Any opinions?

Something to keep in mind here. OEM torque specs assume clean, dry threads. (No anti-sieze or thread lock) These products reduce friction as the fastener is tightened so that in effect you are actually over torquing (sp?) it. With titanium fasteners, as with steel, I would be wary of stripping out the parent material as you approach the specified torque limit using anti-sieze or thread lock. It is not uncommon to reduce the torque limit by 25-50% when assembling using lubricated threads.
