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?
Obligatory 'build thread'
Terrible things like this don't happen where I come from. Other terrible things happen instead.
