It's the intake (not high pressure), so it doesn't have to be super tight - just nice and snug. You don't need to put anything on the threads unless you'd like to put some anti-seize on it (eg if it's steel into aluminum you'll get more dissimilar metal corrosion). No teflon tape, etc, is required.

Nah, that's not required for a low pressure air seal. Consider that most of those hoses and things are just pushed into place. Teflon tape never hurts, but you don't need it.

Use teflon tape (or other thread sealer) for sensors on the cooling system or wherever there is not a pressure fitting but just a threaded-in piece (eg brake lines have a pressure fitting and don't need tape).
