I use verry little saler if needed on a stud or bolt I use liquid teflon it has worked for me going on 20+ years now. On tighning the studs I run them down by hand with a speed handle and a stud installer then tighten them 30 inch pounds to make sure they are seated in the block. ARP says hand tight but that is just a little more than hand tight and again I have never had a problem.
