And the part number that I quoted earlier is $417 at this dealer but im sure you could get a better price from an online dealer.
So it may be worthwhile to wait for an aftermarket intake and have the stock one on the side to swap in willy nilly!
Thanx for the fuse info!
Interesting. I just dont see how they would argue that you need it or anything. I mean if you go in for service, and the tech notices. He might mention it, might not. But if he does, they cant force you to buy the $417 part.
Dinan discussion was that Dinan covers warranty repairs if its remotely caused by the Dinan part. It doesnt void warranty, but they just swallow the bill.
And I agree, there is no way that the DMV would know about your charcole filter removal.
