Question To BBK, or not to BBK, that is the question

I've melted both the left and right stock front brake piston dust boots. I don't notice anything yet... but it's getting disconcerting. Other than pad dust, it's pretty clean in the front calipers as we don't see much rain in Colorado. I am running Pagid Yellows pads at the track. Do BBKs have the same issue, or is it time to simply get a dedicated car? ("Not to BBK" for this car would give me a nice chunk of change to start with a 944, for example.) With the extra disc area of BBKs, I assume the temps stay lower and thus less chance of stuff melting. I'd love to hear your opinion. Cheers.
