Copperhead hotend

I'm having issues using the grove adapter I found and printed for my mini. It seems to be just too weak/brittle no matter what the material and infill (type and percentage).  Could it be possible to mount this hotend into a V6 adapter for the mini instead? The only issue I can see is that the hotend fan will blow much more direct onto the heat dissipater and the temps may need to be increased for certain materials and balanced with the bridgemaster nozzle.

I printed mine with PF Blend.  It was not brittle at all.
