Dig deep and don't resist the temptation to but all 5!  I
figured mine had quite a few miles on em and I didn't want to
have to tear it all apart again 2 weeks later when the next
one failed (I have this kind of luck sometimes).  While
expensive I have convinced myself that the piece of mind was
for the 400 or so extra G Washingtons.  Happy to report no
misses under full boost (and all hoses stayed in place) @ the
VIR event.

On a different note i'd like to report back to you regarding
an earlier inquiry regarding test pipes, the stink is
definitely there.  

Speaking of VIR (hijack) it was both amazing to see the
Porsche Carrera GT stretching its legs at speed (the sound of
that thing on the straight, all alone is intoxicating, to me
it sounds like a jet, you've got to hear it), and maddening to
see it limp into the paddock after the wreck.  Hay Carumba!  I
guess if you can afford to buy one you can afford to fix one.
 Gotta wonder want the insurance will be like on that beast,
assuming they put in a claim.
