That's odd. I'd be concerned about that JB Weld inside the housing coming loose and breaking apart after so many heat cycles. Debris like that would not be great to hit spinning turbines and go down the intake into engine.
Agreed. It may work fine temporarily, but it could potentially cause some damage if it comes apart.

That’s on the exhaust side of the turbo isn’t it? That piece is flying out the manifold fast, I think. Will burn up in the cat

Yep, you're right. My bad! Still not ideal I'd say though.
