    I have a 1 gen dsm ic for my turbo application I am currently working on the question I have is I cut the outpipe that exits the top of the ic and relocated it coming out of the bottom of the chamber. since I cannot weld the aluminum due to lack of tools I used that liquid steel epoxy to seal the old hole and fasten down the new outpipe now I used a truck innertube and hoseclamped both sides over with the tube cut a slit in one side and stuffed an air compressor nozzle into it and pumped up the pressure until the tube ballooned out on both sides I figure this should hold up to 6-8 psi but will it hold up to prolonged pressure???

    thanks a lot

    JB weld?

    Ji had his BOV JB welded... it blew off the pipe at 12 psi after a couple weeks.

    short term- go for it.
    long term, bring it somehwere to be welded witht he right tool

    No matter what they call it, it's still epoxy... and I wouldn't trust it to hold pressure.
