Never
Just say you were washing it and found it or something.
Ford has has some issues with this in the past, testing found it to be caused by chemical contamination, but the bigwigs won't accept that.

BTW: what you do with the RB mudflaps?

Exactly what I was going to say!!!

RokBlokz are in a bag sitting on my shelf! I'm taking a break for a while and see if I like it without them! If not ill wash them and put them back on

Ps they will be back on quick! A lot of people were disappointed I took them off today! Lol

I'm not sure. I know nothing about turbo setups. I'm still learning about engines. Lol. :)

i'm disappointed you took 'em off. I thought they were different. Thought about a set for mine, still unsure.

They can't speculate. They have to have cold hard proof of this being done to the vehicle. Warranties get voided on Mustangs and a lot of Ecoboost motors due to modification all the time. This is cause of videos on youtube at the dragstrip and whatnot. Your issue really isn't a big deal, they wouldn't void your warranty over a $100.00 taillight.

Prime example:
Warranty was voided on this Flex when they came in with "Transmission Problems" MRT FLEX
This exact video was found and used to argue the modifications done to the vehicle. Mind you they bothered enough to return the vehicle to stock form before bringing it to the dealer.
Also This: Another dragstrip video

177whp from the base 2012 focus, intake, exhaust and a base tune from SCT. Very interesting.

Thanks a lot Ted! I appreciate the insight!! One of the Gorno's sold me my car so I talked to him! Nice guy, asked no questions! And it's getting replaced!! I felt confident going in that I was getting it replaced with your response! I'm just going to leave the parking lot as quiet as I can so they can't find something Ghey to void anything! (Intake is loud)

Get the standard zetec kit.
The ONLY difference is a single charge pipe.

If you really want a kit from them, the $150-200 charge pipe isn't going to make or break it. If it is, you shouldn't be looking to go turbo.

Also, if you're wanting to go turbo, it would be a wise idea to learn exactly how the system works. Trust me...and everyone who's ever gone turbo.

THIS!

there are a lot of us that can help you learn the basics of turbos. Garrett's turbo tech articles (on their website here) are a solid start.
