This is a list of what I used to do the intake refresh. I searched Rennlist for each product type, and then settled on what seemed to be the “best practice.”
I don’t have any affiliation with any of these products.
1) Gummi Pflege Rubber Care Stick. I used it on the hoses that I didn’t replace, like the upper and lower radiator hoses. It seems to help condition old rubber.
2) Drei Bond 1209. I used it on the oil filler neck, spark plug gaskets, coolant crossover paper gaskets, and other places that might leak. Greg Brown swears by it- apparently it seals better in the presence of oil.
3) Optimol Paste TA. I bought this from Roger Tyson at 928sRUs. It is a silver-colored anti-seize. I used this every time aluminum made contact with steel. This included the threads of bolts, and when I connected male ends of the fuel system (steel) with the female ends of Greg Brown fuel lines (aluminum.)
4) Hondabond 4. I believe this is also called Yamabond. It is a silicone gasket sealer that I used in the channel of the valve covers. It is rubbery when it dries. It does not come with an applicator tip- I bought a cheap tube of gasket sealer so I could use its tip with the Hondabond.
5) Loctite 574. I used this around the circumference of the camshaft end covers (aka hockey pucks.) Apparently, it needs to be stored in room temperature, and does not last long after it is opened.
6) Evapo-Rust. I used this to remove the rust on my fuel rails, various bolts and brackets. It is great because you can reuse it (When pouring back into the container, I filtered the dirty Evapo-Rust through a coffee strainer.)
7) Stubby hex key. I needed this to tighten one of the cam cover bolts on the driver’s side that is impossible to tighten without it.
8) Crow’s feet wrenches in 17 and 19mm, to counter hold, remove (and replace) the fuel line from the fuel cooler to the fuel pressure regulator. (If you decide not to replace fuel lines, you won’t need this.)
9) DeOxIT. I used this on every Bosch terminal (male and female ends.) Injector plugs, temperature sensors, things like that.
10) Butt splices. I used these when replacing broken injector plugs. Roger sells injector plug kits that include a new plug, terminals, and boot.
11) Danco Silicone Faucet Grease. I bought this to lubricate the injectors before they went into the fuel rails. According to several sources, it is Dow Corning 111, repackaged in a different container. Dow Corning 111 Dow Corning 111 is more expensive and hard to find, while the Danco product is available at Home Depot.
12) Kroil. Any time I had a nut, bolt, anything that wouldn’t turn, I applied Kroil and let it sit overnight. It really saved me with the bonded rubber buffers that were broken and difficult to remove.
Before starting the procedure, as Mike Frye recommends, I ran the car (until it stalled) with the fuel pump relay (relay XX) disconnected, to empty the car’s system of gasoline. I also disconnected the ground strap at the rear of the car.
