M4 thread at 3Nm should generate about 4kN axial load, cable tension isn't likely to exceed 1kN,so you're hoping the coefficient of friction of cable vs. housing is more than 0.25, disregarding any mechanical interlock generated by deformation.
And thats why I knew I'm asking the right people here :)
I guess my fear was rather fraying, but gotcha: Dont be an idiot, use a torque wrench, and it should be fine.
Also thanks for sharing your experience @Retro_Bastard !
I've learnt more here than i was able to contribute. It seems my + 1/4 turn just incase approach isn't the best practice. More finesse from now on... maybe
