Default Are the Head gaskets a problem?

I'm going to be getting an EX real soon. I have heard though the I should watch out for my head gasket. Has anyone else had it blow or something along those lines?

if it has never been changed it might be a good idea because age wears and tears on parts. Usualy what when they start to go is because they blow from forced induction.
