Default To die or not to die????

So my year old ICM took a dump. Thankfully, it had a lifetime warranty (Borg Warner Part). The car would throw a code which indicated a bad crank sensor but it was just replaced with the new balancer, which was shot. The Chevy dealer had some "seasoned" techs that isolated the CL to to the ICM and not the crank sensor. My question is, do you use die electric grease on these or not? Factory service manual was no help. I cleaned the mount to a surgical clean surface, and applied a liberal coat of die electric grease and buttoned everything up. Works great so far but I am looking at a 1500 miles road trip in a week and don't want a failure in the middle of BF New Mexico or Texas. So far, I will be packing a spare set of coils and am am looking into adding an ICM to the box-o-spares for the road trip. Just wanna know if I should leave the grease or pull the ICM and mount it dry.

Die Electric grease won't have an adverse effect, it is actually recommended for anything thats hot cold or could suck in moisture..
