Can I use a spare junction block to connect my meters and choke to. I would like to link it with a switch source in the fuse block to make adding circuits with a ring connector easier.
I was thinking this would be similar in function to the connector M.A.D. electrical sells for the same purpose

I assume you are mounting the block under the hood. Is that correct or are you running the choke line back inside the car. Sounds like a good idea. Good place for a choke. Not sure what meters you are trying to wire.

Inside the car. Looking for the choke, voltmeter and switched fan relay.

That would work if you are only tying the relay coil to it. If it was my car I'd mount it on the firewall under the hood but each person has his own ideas.

You can pretty much use a junction block anywhere you want to. Note that junctions come in two varieties: grounded and insulated. The use of ground junctions is very very common.

The insulated junction block is not very common because a junction is basically a one to many connection. When these types of connections are made to power supply circuits it is really recommended practice to use a fuse block to provide individual circuit protection.

If it is inside I would recommend one of the basic four or six circuit expansion fuse blocks instead of the junction block. Some of these support the use of ring connectors if you are really set on ring connectors. Personally I find them rather uninsulated for general use.

For use up under the hood I would look for a fuse block with a cover.
