I hope they deny your claim and any others associated with your car. Gotta pay to play. People like you who mod their cars then convert them back to stock or almost stock to get SoA to cover a warranty claim make it harder for the rest of us who are honest to get claims covered. Ass.

Wrong forum...but

They will be able to tell what was taken off the vehicle. It would have been better for you to leave it on.

Be prepared to authorize teardown to determine cause of what is wrong. If it is deemed not warranty, you will be responsible for at least the teardown.

Just by your mod list, if it turns out to be a major repair, (like a rod knock), in my experience, it won't be covered.

Dealers are not stupid. I hope they throw you on the coals for attempting to de-fraud SOA.

Just go in and tell them about the Moss Magnusson Act and how THEY have to PROVE your modifications caused the problem. LOL!
