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 it..lol

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.

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?

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....?

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.

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.
