Yes, but it is a good idea to use a hardened washer between the aluminum intake and the bolt head as this greatly reduces damage to the intake as the bolts are torqued up. Be sure to use a sealant on the bolt threads to stop any oil or coolant weepage. Plumber's Teflon paste type pipe thread sealant works well, it provides the right amount of lube in the threads so the torque readings match the booked values and it provides an excellent oil and coolant tight seal.
