2017 H&S Intercooler Pipe OEM replacement

Good morning everyone. How many of you have installed the H&S Intercooler Pipe on your 2017 Ford F350 6.7L Powerstrokes? I've been reading a lot about how they blow up and leave you stranded on the side of the road. Why does Ford use such a part if they know it will blow up?
What's your advice on whether to replace it now or wait and see what happens? Thank you in advance for your replies!

I replaced mine last fall using the H&S. The original had been replace under warranty at about 17,000 miles along with the cooler. At about 102,000 I decided after a couple folks on the Ford truck forum (FTE) suggested that there could be a problem. After pulling the old one off, found that it was starting to get soft at the CAC.

If you do replace the CAC tube, be aware that H&S offer two versions. One needs to use a tuner, the other will work on the stock engine. My only complaint with mine was the clamps -- there are better ones for a few bucks.

Also, there are other brands that physically look better but don't work any better

Mine went out at about 70k miles with NO WARNING! Was towing Montana on flat ground at 62mph and KABOOM!
