Angry Busted!!!!

Hello All:
Well today I was getting ready to order my Focus sport header and flex pipe, when my darling wife walked in and asked what I was spending 300.00 dollars plus on......Me being the ******* I am,told her.....SHe gave me the "im with stupid look" and left.

I went to work before I could put the order in.ABout an hour later she calls all p..off!!

Talking to one of her co workers, she told my wife her husband had a Taurus SHO, he modded with "headers" and something broke on it and ford did not honor the warranty.

I explained:

1)My car only has an add-on warranty from car-max, its not the factory.
2)It would be the last mod I wopuld do to the car.(im not a serious racer and this is my daily driver)

Still, no cigar.

She is pissed off.

Here is the question:
1) Should I still go ahead and put the headers on.(risk the told u so...)
2) Not get header and just put a high flow cat (would it make any improvements and the warranty thing should not be compromised....or would it?????)

Helpz!!!

Good idea, she doesn't have to know, whose car is it your or hers. Be the man of the house!
