I just don't know what boost the cars were running that popped the charge pipes, as I didn't tune them... I've seen the burst parts though, so I know it happens. It may be there are some manufacturing tolerances at play here, as in the intercoolers. Notice how some people can run for years at 18 or 19psi without the end-tanks popping off while others blow shortly after stage1 and 16 or 17psi?
The fact that many revolutionary new ideas were at first ridiculed is no proof that the 'new' ideas you're being ridiculed for now are indeed visionary.
