Somewhere in the shop we have a ported one that blew the side out at 1.0bar boost.

Thus aluminum injector blocks and thermal insulators. No more warping or cracking.
I used them bored for a couple of years without any issue. Maybe the age of the blocks are a factor too. But no doubt, risk is higher and I can only agree to your statement Chris

PS: I have to say (as a lightweight fetish), the aluminum blocks are a lot heavier
