yeah....i dont think im going to get mine replaced under warranty. And based on what it going to cost me to bring my car to stock to try and get them replaced.....might as well explore upgrades or replace them with oem's

I am having the problem of smoking really bad as well after secondary cat removal. It is white smoke. I hate to take it to the dealer rather than an independent unless I am pretty sure they would replace it under the extended turbo warranty. What all has to be happening for them to do this? I also have heard that the PCV is a posibility? Any way to tell if its more likely the tubos or the PCV?

I replaced the pcv, no luck, still smoking. Not sure dealer will reach turbos. They find every excuse not too.
