Arrow Dealer Says My Aftermarket Intake is to blame....

Just want everyones thoughts on this...

My 2000 RS's alarm siren stopped making noise a few months back. I took it into Carter and they spent a day on it and couldnt figure it out. So i took it to Walker Subaru and they told me my WeaponR intake was causing engine vibrations at higher revs that somehow made the wires to the siren stop working. So they dont want to pay this as a warranty repair and they want me to pay to have the siren rewired.

It seems to me that the intake is nowhere near the stock alarm siren...and the engine vibrates either way stock or aftermarket intake...its a boxer.

Its 50bucks out of my pocket but i bristle when someone says my aftermarket parts caused some failure. Like my STi air valve stem caps caused wheel bearings to fail just kidding

Any thoughts?
