The Stock pipes are not loctited from factory, probably because most people change the exhaust almost straight away anyway. On the original 5b motors the pipes were loctited on and people complained of how hard it was to get the stock pipe off, I guess the manufacturer listened and stopped doing it.

Use a good quality High Strength high heat loctite, the Hpi red works well if you have any, other than that, any loctite that is marked as permanent will do the job
