In ~March 2017 we began shipping all units with the v2 compressor housing adapter and to date have had no complaints with any of them allowing the silicone to pop off. We have also had no further complaints of the v1 adapter either. (Picture attached of v2 adapter on left vs. v1 adapter on right)

In short these units have been overwhelmingly successful and seem to be holding up very well.

Another 6 month update here for a total of 1.5 years since we began selling the RB N54 Silicone High Flow outlets. We are very happy to report that we have only had 1 reported issue of the outlet hosing burning/cracking, and this user in particular was not using our RB Custom heat shield we typically recommend (nor any sort of other heat protection).

This is not to say that this is the only case, but it is certainly the only one that has been reported back to RB thus far. All in all these seem to be holding up surprisingly well with time.
