i heard some people said that the higher pressure than stock rad cap would cause problems such as blowing the radiator?

I have been using a 1.4 bar cap for almost a year. No leaks.

My car only has one radiator cap.It is on the coolant reservoir near the turbo. There is no cap on the radiator. I think they started with two caps on the 2004's

My radiator leaked (with a Greddy Radiator Cap) and the cap wasn't the reason for the radiator to leak. I think some factory radiators tend to leak. Just check your radiator from time to time.
