Post Borla headers cracking?

I've seen a few mentions of Borla Headers cracking. Has anyone had this happen on the Gen2's?

Mine cracked, and according to Borla I have the redesigned. But I attribute the spreading of a small crack that occurred 'naturally' to me tapping the muffler on a curb when backing into a space. Cost of crack, $75 to be pulled, uhh, make that cut, from the car and welded. It took all of 45 min, while I waited and BS'd with the guy. Rose muffler in Topeka KS, very close to forbes field, the site of the Solo 2 Nationals. They did an excellent job, and put it back together so that it could be removed 'easily' in the future, if necessary.

No cracks yet.
Plus I have the wieght of the turbo on it.

Rallispec has a solution for this, anyone who has Borlas and wants a turbo can do it.

even if it didcrack doesn't Borla have like a life-time gaurantee? In that case they'll either peplace it or fix it for you.

I drive my car every day and once the engine is warm I beat the piss out of my car. No problems with the Borlas cracking at all, no a CE light... that's another matter, but I think I have that under control now too.
BTW, if you have to wrap them to control the ce light thingy you void the life time gaurantee, so if they break I'm screwed.
