Just got mine back, went in with downpipes, fmic, and no cats.
They reprogrammed it and replaced the hpfp.
It felt slow as hell when I turned the tune back on (JB4 was set to 0).
Found out they had left a vacuum line off going to the dv's. After I fixed that, all went back to normal and the car felt stronger than before.

I don't know what the hell to do....

I took out my bov, tune, and intake. Also i forgot to add the car is BURNING gas after the visit. I am going to go in again to the same dealer and get it serviced... See what they say and if nothing can be done, I'm going to call corporate and have them downgrade the car back to the way it was and they can take my warranty with them I don't want it anymore.

Dude, call corporate and tell them the truth. They can not legally deny you any warranty work without PROVING that what you modified, is the cause of what you want warrantied. And unless you authorized them to remap the ECU, they also can't do that.

Almost sounds like the tech or the SA just wanted to make some easy money by doing an easy job that didn't even need done, while snaking out of the "hard" work by blaming your mods. I'd be furious.

Why don't you log some runs, see what your boost is @ or contact Terry and see what he says.

This is not likely accurate. He has an 07, so he likely is on a CPO warranty at this point, which is a service contract, in which they can deny warranty work for whatever mods they want.

Though maybe the OP can clarify if he is still on the factory warranty or on a CPO warranty?
