When installing shouldered studs do you use a sealer or loctite on the threads and what do you torque them to ? I've done the non-shouldered studs before and always used red loctite on the threads and just snugged them up.

I've always just used the red hi-temp silicone. Has always worked just fine and as far as torque goes I just tighten them down real well. I do it the same way even when the shouldered studs will be holding down guideplates as well.
