Default Warranty question and the silencer mod...

My radiator has been leaking coolant (I think from a long 5 hour drive to Santa Fe), and I am scheduled to take it in to the dealership tomorrow. Question, do you think they will bitch about the silencer removal or tell me the radiator isn't under warranty now? I wouldn't think they would notice, except they have to remove the snorkel (which is now attached to a dryer duct hose instead of the silencer) to get to the radiator.

Don't sweat it. Unless YOU put the hole in the radiator they cant refuse the warranty. If they try, I would laugh in their face!

But they will probably deny any complaints you have about intake noise.

I think you should be fine. DId you cut the resonator or did you just remove it? If just removal then put it back. If you cut it then I think they won't notice it unless they look inside the fender. I wouldn't sweat it even if they did notice. And if all else fails just head up to FlatIrons in Boulder. They are very reasonable with mods.

My friend had them install a 3" MRT turbo back system, lightened flywheel, and short shifter when he bought it and he still gets full 100,000 extended warranty intact.
