What kind of Locktite on Torque Converter and Flexplate Bolts??

Alright, I plan on hopefully in the next day or two pull my tranny, converter, and flexplate, and rear cover.... Put on a new cover with new rear main seals, reinstall my original flexplate, Install a 3800 FTI Stall on the transmission and bolt it all up.

Anyway, I know on the flexplate and the converter bolts I need some sort of locktite on them... What kind? I've heard blue, i've heard red, etc. What exactly should I use? And yes I searched and got mixed answers, thats why i'm here. Logically speaking, I'm thinking red will be too much and make disassembly a PITA for me in the future since red bonds very well . But I know those parts spin fast at high RPMs so i'm not 100% sure.

Thanks for any input...

Red Loctite is generally for bolts you never want to remove. Blue for temporary. So, in short, go blue.

Blue is what is recommended. Most convertor companies send a small tube of red. I personally use red just to be on the safe side. Make sure to you ptfe or a teflon paste on the flexplate bolts with the blue or red loctite.
