focaltech They will be able to tell as soon as they hook up the WDS.

oracleguy If you get a chip, just get the Diablo Delta chip so you can just set it to the stock program when you take it in for work. I dunno if they'd be able to tell unless they took at look at the chip itself but I wouldn't think so.

Focusedat50 Once again, the question of warranty is very subjective. I wouldn't think a header would cause your warranty to be voided unless it's proven to be the direct cause of the problem.
Sounds good in theory, in reality who really knows except the powers to be at almighty Ford.

The C.A.R.B. thing I believe pertains to smog or emissions requirements and has nothing to do with warranty validation.

Odublar Question:

If you drive around a place with mph marker of 25 as the limit, and your with an automatic tranny running in 1st gear, what is the safest rpm to get up to... I tested in @ 25 m.p.h. in first gear with just topping over 4000 rpm....?

BIGBADWORM Since we're on the topic of warranty here, I was told JBA headers wont void your warranty because theyre carb legal? Anyone second this?

Some ideas.

1. Chip to smooth out your shifting - about $200-250. No HP gain. Just makes your car more fun to drive.
2. Intake - about $35-300. Depending on if you buy just a cone filter or intake system.
Looking at about 2-3HP gain at the wheels.
3. 65mm TB - about $200-250. better throttle response, which make car more fun to drive. About 2-3HP gain at the wheels.
4. UDP - about $80-120. about a 2-3HP gain at the wheels.
5. Focus Fanatics sticker - free after 100 posts. About a 50HP gain at the wheels.

poisonivory oh i agree, i do me for me, not for anyone else. Just wanted opinions. The only reason I may not want to do it, is that there is a TOTALLY Blacked out VW Jetta around my neighborhood, quite nice. Black rims, 5% tint, blacked out lights, dropped. I like to be original, but I guess the girl that drives the Jetta beat me to

Focusedat50 I believe all black would look good. My ZX5 is white and I have white rims, white Tribute
door handles etc.......Tried to stay with the white theme, some people like it some don't.
Doesn't matter, I like it and that's all that counts so if you think it looks good, go for it.

poisonivory well then if thats the case i dont think ill be doing much engine mods. Because 1) I dont have the knowledge of engines and the like, to fix things myself. 2) I dont have to money to put cash out for repairs if I do void my warranty by modding. So, ill play it safe and work up on some styling mods, wheels, exhaust, audio. Then when the warranty is done, Ill start modding slightly for perormance. By that time I hope to have adequate knowledge to do most work myself.
