  If you can get it out and the threads are clean, I wouldn't helicoil.  RE:
loctite, neither of the options you mentioned (red/blue) will hold up under
exhaust manifold heat.  Use those ovaled nuts, torque them down, leave them
alone, and hope for the best.  If you're _really_ scaredy you could safety
wire them, but that's a hard job.
