Question anyone else jb weld their junction box?

Well turns out the junction box i got only has holes for 6 lines, mine has 8 (sonofabitchpileofmonkeynuts) so i pulled a tbrickers move by pulling out the sensor and blown out gasket and jbwelded that bastard. Has anyone else done this? and how did it hold up?

if you use JBweld properly no reason it would not last.

I know of a certain Intercooler that has had JBweld on it for the last 4+years and seen 3 summers of AZ heat w/o any issues or leaks

intercooler is different than a safety system, it may stay for a long time but if it were me i would take the time to do it properly so i feel safe. maybe it lasts for years but one day in a panic brake situation it pops out and you have an accident, no good.

You're misunderstanding the junction block. If the JB-welded sensor ever saw any significant pressure, your worries would be much much greater than that of a small leak.

There's a reason that a goddamned plastic sensor was considered good enough by Volvo to go where it goes.

Hey, unplug the sensor completely and see if you can still stop. You may be surprised.
