That should be enough heat cycles and see enough boost enough times that even not at the elevated levels of stress of higher psi it should show a casting flaw if there is one.
Kellygnsd already covered this one...although it would be interesting to hear from someone inside SOA, or more likely a dealership mechanic, if this is a legit issue.
