Mine has not split since adding a breather to it. (to the small inner section)

 

As for the grease temp. DO NOT use grease that comes with the kia sedona boot. I got that turned into a liquid somehow.
So any decent quality grease is fine. Inner CV needs 150 grams. Outer CV needs 130 grams.
If you feel like spending more on grease: 
Redline CV-2 goes up to 260 degrees, and is about 30 euro a jar.
NEO HPCC1 goes up to 649 degrees, and is about 170 euro per container.

Maybe if you put the breather pipe on the larger section, mother nature may slingshot it all out.

The one i have, and those i talked to are happy using it.

 

Before that, i waisted about 3 on trackdays.

Then added the breather and used the kia grease. (That indeed turned into liquid, and leaked out the small section)
Added a new kia boot, used the same breather, but now used decent greace.

 

Fingers crossed so far. (into my 3rd year iirc)

 

It's not written in stone though.

I believe fiveoclock went through them like crazy during racing, and he also tried the breather.

Courtenay Sport now sell CV boots for the VX which are aftermarket. I'm told they are good quality OE equivalent and from experience if they are willing to put thier name to them it must be good.
Just ordered one.

Thanks Sam,
Just for your info also, when I used the proper boot, cleaned griping faces properly and used the correct metal ties, it has never come off. 👍👍👍

How often do the CV joints wear out? Does anyone know of one doing so please?

  Nev, the rubber perishes as it ages so it's mainly age dependant rather than milage, however both stress the boot. To give you an idea, mine has just failed (and been replaced with a Kia Sedonia one) and it's 12 years old and done 86k. 
Think nev was asking about the cv joints themselves rather than the rubber boot? I wondered this myself especially when high power conversions are putting lots of torque through them?

 

 

Just for info, when I inspected my CV joint internals about 2 months ago, there was severe pitting/wear on the ball bearing races. Goes to show the torque does wear them out. What made me inspect it was that I was getting "pick up" clunk when accelerating gently and I could feel approx 1 or 2 degrees of play in the shaft halves. Obviously the passenger side shaft will wear faster due to the sharper angles it has to cope with.

Is the inner CV boot the same for both the turbo and the NA? Is this the one I need to order?

Yes CV boots are the same and yes the one you linked is the correct one for inboard joint.

I bought exactly this one a month ago and is good quality like OE and perfect fit.

I used the CV boot linked above on my 2003 NA and got it fitted using the guidance here. Took me about 3 hours. 

 

Thanks to everyone who contributed!
