The right (passenger) side boot would be more condusive to failure than 
the left due to the exhaust heat on that side.  The turbo cars would have 
to be more likely to fail due to the increased heat of the turbo application.

On my humble 4-cyl 4000S, the exhaust pipe runs pretty close to the pass. 
side c.v. joint.
