Arp Torque Lube on everything else?

So I bought a 10 oz bottle to ARP torque lube to make sure I had enough to do my stud job. I also bought a bottle of permatex anti-seize. I'm wondering if anybody else is using the ARP lube on all the other bolts when putting everything else back together. A little curious due to it reducing torque values by about 18% on the studs compared to the previous lube they were using.

It would only make sense that it would reduce torque values for other bolts as well. At least that's my thoughts..

So use ARP or the permatex anti-seize?

ARP on the studs, anti seize on anything else you think needs it.

I use the arp lube an all the internal bolts, I've used it on everything inside my engine so far as it goes back together. Main bolts, rod bolts, studs, rockers. Seems to work well.

My guess is the ARP lube is a graphite anti-seize. Used more for assembly than it is to keep fasteners from freezing up. I still use nickel anti-seize on exhaust parts/turbo clamps and save the ARP lube for the studs.

That is a hell of an idea. That last set of 90's will make a man out of you. I imagine is makes it easier than engine oil along with less binding on the bolt.
