Of course it is! They're fixing things that owners broke! The warranty is for things they didn't build or assemble correctly.

Yes, and federal law specifies what they must cover AND THEY DON'T HAVE TO COVER YOU FOR WHAT YOU BROKE. They only have to cover what they didn't build or assemble correctly.

Bull****! It has a significant effect, especially on turbo Subarus. This is like saying that hey, just because I pocket a Hershey bar every time I fill up with gas, it's not like the price of the Hershey bars goes up; I mean everybody does it. You prove this point yourself with this classic:

Exactly. And that percentage is altered significantly by the times they fix things that weren't their responsibility in the first place.

I work here and get "Sorry it's because of the mods" Some people who are repeat offenders get cut off... rightfully so. I'm just bitter that it's ok for people who come in off the street to get taken care of but they wont hook me up.
As far as stronger than stock units goes. They would be custom and stupid money. After the new ones go I'll be able to swing it... just not now
Here I have a little sympathy. It's extremely frustrating to see everyone cheating, and seeing the dealers apparently facilitating the cheating.

Your last 2 sentences are the crux of the matter: You don't have the money to modify your truck AND accept the responsibilities that come with the mods. You made the mods anyway, and now you want me and everyone else to bail you out.
