Anyone have '99+ intakes and cracked 'em?

I'll be doing the ol' headswap soon, so my '96 plastic crack-prone intake will be replaced with a '01 intake. I realize Ford's standing behind the '96-'97 intakes, so I'm hoping they've beefed up the new ones in the necessary locations so as not to have these same problems.

Has anyone heard of or experienced the newer ('99+) intakes cracking?

The intakes were cracking in the coolant crossover passage section of the intake manifolds. You are getting the new '02 intake with the aluminum coolant crossover section with your headswap kit.

That's great. I already had one crack. I bought the car used about three years ago. Within a few months WHAM! and I was stranded.
