Got my letter a few days ago and also says no parts available yet. I'm a 6/10 build.
Quick question:
Anyone out there that's tuned+FBO and going to get this done? Are you returning to stock to get this service done? I'm so close to my warranty expiring I don't want to remove my parts. Can they refuse to do the recall if I'm tuned+FBO?

no they can't refuse it since it affects the car no matter what. I'm only removing the jb4 since I don't know what they have to take off and I feel like they might mess up my jb4. Everything else is staying on

You got the letter so you are covered. It probably wont show up in their system until they get all of the parts and start scheduling the recall work.
Still a waiting game but don't worry.

You'll get a letter if you're affected Wing- hang in there. You can check the black plate inside your door frame for your month and year of build.

Any noticeable increases in performance after the swap, or pretty much not noticeable?
