Default Oil pickup refitting - torque setting and threadlock?

Hi All

Needing to refit my oil pickup as part of S2 16v Euro engine rebuild but I can't find any guidance about torque setting for the 1 large and 2 small mounting bolts in either the WSM or previous threads. Also is it normal/acceptable to threadlock them in place. Any ideas?

...maybe a partial answer. Pickup uses 2 x M6, 1 x M8. No specific listing of torque in WSM but there is a general statement in Manual 1 sec 10-06 about "All other bolts & nuts"; M6 - 6+2Nm, M8 - 20+2. No mention of threadlock but it's just ones of those bolts you don't want coming loose...

I'm not a fan of adding thread locker where Porsche didn't use it, but this is one place where I do use blue Loctite. The 6mm bolts I torque to 72 inch pounds. The 8mm Allen bolt I torque to 18 ft.lbs.
