6.0 intercooler question

I'm going to be buying a intercooler for a 6.0 just to get it out of the way for when i do some more mod's, I've read something about the plastic end's are bad for high boost pressure? Can anyone tell me more about that. Ill be running stage 2's and s366 in the near future so i Dont want to buy something that will break thanks

It hasn't been as much of a problem with the 6.0 intercoolers as it was with the 7.3 intercoolers with plastic ends.
