Solved brake squealing problem by applying to back of brake pads. Calipers slide more freely, too. Only used 1 pack for 2 wheels.

                      Can this product be used as anti-seize on turbo, exhaust bolts?

                        A:

                        Hi Erikas! That's a really good question, but the answer is a no. Anti-seize contains the properties it will take to ensure ease of disassembly when the turbo does what turbos do best. The brake lubricant has what it takes temperature wise, but nothing else that will help the end user in the future.
