well, I really leaned on it for the first time since getting the tsb bushings and installing an lpe cai and magnaflows....nice burnout, AND PLENTY OF WHEELHOP...so, where do I go from here..bmr and or KARS? 1600 imles, no rearend trouble yet, But i'm concerned, i'll have to pull all this off if I do have trouble before the dealer sees it, and its mounting up...also going in is a B and M, and a stealthv tune...has anyone made it past a dealer for a rearend with all these mods in place?

Most dealers are cool about it. Most of dealer don't care about the cai and the exhaust, unless you remove the cats.........the might me a different story.

Wheel hop is a good thing! :thumbsup: It means your rear differential is still there. When you don't hear wheel hop, worry. :histeric:

Here is a story.....it will take a moment or two, but it tells you the downside of what can happen at the dealer.

Depending on how overbudget your dealer is on warrantee work, you may be denied a warrantee by simply driving your car. If you drive the car, the tires wear. Since the F1s wear very quickly, when you visit your dealer with such heavily-worn F1s, they may accuse you of driving the vehicle "beyond its design parameters" due to excessive tire wear. The only true way to guarantee that your warrantee will be safe is to not drive it.
