Default Quick question as i'm bolting up the turbo

I was chatting with my buddy who's got the greddy setup on his 1.6 and he told me I need to spray something on the bolts when I bolt up the T25 to the HKS manifold. Any idea what hes talking about? What do you guys think I should do to the Turbo/Manifold before putting them togeather. I'm not going to bother with a gasket due to problems i've read on here.

Antisieze the **** out of the hardware. Better yet, scrap what they gave you and go get decent hardware and antisieze that.

And make sure you don something so the hardware won't back out, I have lots of Nord-locks on my manifold.
