Mark, Joe,

I've had it both ways.  On the first occasion, I popped the turbo to
crossover hose partially off the pipe and was able to limp home.  On the
second occasion, I blew it off with enough force that the plastic mounting
tabs fractured and I was dead on the side of the highway.

Needless to say, I am now running a steel cross over pipe, Samco's, and
constant tension clamps.
