Hey, so I'm looking for a mod friendly dealer on southern nh/lowell ma area. I bought ky wrx at subaru of nashua but am unsure if they will have issues with my Cobb intake.

I have a 2008 dmg wrx stage 1, 93 Cobb intake, ap tune, with the Cobb sf intake, no airbox.

I searched and see a lot of people go to exeter, but I was wondering if anyone knows about nashua, Manchester, or another dealer with a 30 minute drive.

I have the 100,000 mile warrenty, and while i know modding voids any claim linked to the modded parts, which is fine and I fully accept that, but since I have a modded car, id like to take it to one that has a higher tolerance to them.


Ive heard good things about Manchester?

I have a Cobb intake on my 11 STI. I have brought it to Manch for 4 oil changes now and they never said anything about it except they have sometimes seen the intake throw a CEL on a few cars.

That's because you aren't asking them to replace anything under warranty...

No luck with Cityside in my experiences. They wouldn't replace a coolant line in my WRX just because I had an aftermarket radiator. They tried to tell me I would have to buy a new OEM radiator instead.

They're not even going to notice that. What do you need done? and What car are you driving? If it's an out of warranty fix/repair/maintenance, then they really won't care. If it's warranty work, then they probably won't notice it with the tune/bushings.

2012 WRX... Rattling/grinding noise when decelerating or holding constant speed in 1st 2nd or 3rd between 3000-1000rpm. Thinking something with the clutch... 10,000 miles. Been making noise since I got īt, but my old car made the same noise... So I just ignored it... But it's getting worse... And people always ask me what that noise is

Very few single parts can void an entire warranty. An intake is not one of them.

If you pop a ringland, or anything in the engine for that matter, you most definetely can be denied due to an intake. Who said anything about the ENTIRE warranty

You guys do realize that the intake conversation was 9 months ago and probably taken care of at this point, right??
