not totally sure, but I'd suggest uninstalling the cobb before taking it to the dealership for any check engine lights.

I'd like to know also since I need to get some issues worked out aswell. If you had an AccessPort you could reflash it back to stock

If you are worried about voiding your warranty, do not mod your car. If you blow your engine or tranny while it is modded, be prepared to pay.

You will get little sympathy by attempting to beat the system, you are only making Subaru's more expensive for the rest of us.

Its a Subaru. Unless you abuse or neglect it, you probably won't even use your warranty. Thats the truth. I've been through 3 Subarus already and they've all been very reliable.

Yes, you can uninstall the Accessport with a reflash, and return it back to stock.

But you still have the exhaust mods to take off as well. The AccessPort is the easy part!

do not try to defraud the system. If you modify your car and your modifications cause a failure of any part. TAKE RESPONSIBLITY. If you'r not willing to fix what YOU broke, don't touch the car.

Amen. And then the same people wonder why SoA gets all bitchy in terms of covering repairs.

If you put Cobb Stage 2 on your car your drivetrain warranty is gone. Don't defraud the system for something that you broke.

NOTHING voids a warrantee until it has been deemed the cause of a failure. A Cobb Stage II reflash is undetectable by your dealership, as long as you pull off the Cobb sticker

I do everything myself, so if something breaks, warrantee or not, Subaru won't get to touch it anyways.
