I think it is in the system. After talking to the SOA guy he told me that i needed to remove all the aftermarket parts and bring it back to the dealership for inspection to have the warranty on my engine reinstated. The current issue has nothing to do with the engine, but my cv boots on the passenger side front wheel are torn. They say that the inside one was melted by the downpipe(heatwrapped catless titek - not possible). The outer one they wont even try to explain, all they do is say "nope, not covered".
boots are only covered 3/36 if that helps, so that might be the reason, then again i dont know how many miles you have.
arguably any power mods you have can be said to have increased the vehciles power in turn causing undue stress on the axles that could possible twist them in a manner and put them under stress to wich they were not designed resulting in the early failure of the boots.
