?? bolts holding turbo to pedestal

2005 excursion is the patient

i am in the process of an egr delete and really had a hard time finding 2 of the 3 bolts that held the turbo to the pedestal. i remember reading on a post about these bolts vibrating out well sure enough the 2 horizontal bolts were laying on top of the motor when i removed the turbo.

is there anything, like some type of lock tite, i can do to stop this from happening again when i put it back together or would that be a bad idea for when disassembly is needed down the road?

thanks

this motor was short blocked soon afteri purchased it in 05 due to a flaw in the block that caused a small oil leak so it has been off before i guess someone didnt do the best job putting it on. this thing has been great since then with no problems what so ever.

A little dab of blue Locktite will stop that from happening in the future.

I would find some valve cover locktight, it does not hold as tightly as the regular stuff.
