Default Any probs on downpipe vs cat back

I know a couple of guys were asking me from my area stating that subaru has been voiding your warrenty or will void your warrenty if you run a turbo back aftermarket exhaust but you are fine if you have a cat back? Anyone know or heard about this? I am considering a brullen turbo back but if the warrenty will be voided in any way I will stick with the stromung cat back dual tip. Thanks for the help in advance.

speedbuggy67 - basically if you run the turbo-back, the only type of warranty they can void is your emissions equipment (ie: original cats etc). Otherwise, a dealership cannot void your warranty (only SOA). As well, if you do run into problems, they must prove that it was the turbo-back which caused the problem. You must keep in mind that the turbo-back will not increase boost, only a boost controller can do that.

WRXThis is a Race Spec Brullen turbo-back on his WRX, and had warranty work done on his car no probs.

Up here in Canada, it's ok. Again, they must prove it was the part you added that caused the problem.
