stripped gt35r compressor cover bolt

Ok so i removed my compressor cover on my gt35r to take a look at the wheel, after i started bolting the compressor housing back on i was tightening all the bolts evenly, i tighten them all very tight one of them i accidently overtighten tooo much and stripped out the thread in the housing. My question is its one of the six bolts holding the housing together the bolt still goes in and tightens but it was fully tighten(but unturnable by hand). Now should I get so loctite and put it on there when I reclock th turbo again when installed or a helicoil? or buy a new compressor cover? i dont mind using loctite etc as long as it doesnt leak etc. thanks
