Header .intake manifold and bolts

I just installed borla header a set of cats and a cat back set up basicly whole exhaust. The bolts keep on losing up so either I get a vacuum leak (idle about 3 grand) or it runs like S%#$. Has anyone used locktite on there exhaust bolts? I know I use it on any and every bolt on my Harley.I just dont know if i tis worth taking it all apart again to get the bolts out to use locktite. I cannot do that with out taking it apart because there is no room to get to the 3 lower bolts I spent hours trying the borla headers pipes are to close to bolts to get a socket on and my hand cannot fit up there . So i guess my questions would be
1) any advice
2) will locktite work when I do this
3) Any tricks on how to tighten bolts without taking it all apart
4) I had a thought to try and see if a crows foot wrench with a socket would help anyone ever use them. Thanks
