Locktite is a bad idea. The studs only need to be home to provide hold. The clamping force that comes from the nut during torque is more than enough to prevent loosening.

I use a 5mm hex socket to spin them in, then when they bottom out, I back them off a half turn, then retighten by hand.

Like Juggernaut said, make sure there is no oil in the threaded holes in the block.
If there is, the studs wont bottom out.
I used a plastic syringe with a small piece of vacuum hose on it to suck the oil out.

ARP specifically states that you can can use loctite or their lube. They don't recommend using both though. One or the other.

You could do that. If someone did that, I'd recommend a lower psi than a typical shop air compressor and to cover the surrounding area with rags. Using compressed air to clean liquid can make a nice nasty mess, really fast!! There are a number of ways to used compressed air to create a vacuum and with a small enough hose, you could vacuum the oil out with success.

Not familiar with the procedure on the 6.0 but I have never used loctite on any other motor, just moly lube.

The note under step #5. I'm not doing it, just showing that ARP offers it as an option.
