    Oil change at subaru dealer with no cats...

    I have to go in for a 7500 mile oil change and stuff, also i have a full turboback exhaust and an uppipe, so i have no cats, i was wondering are they going to give me any trouble for that or what? Anyone have any experience with this situation?

    Why are you taking your car to the dealer for an oil change? Get it done somewhere else or do it yourself. Either way it will be cheaper and you won't get crap about your catless setup. Problem solved.

    they'll talk to you about your mods "oh cool is that all you got done etc..." "yeah we love mods here" . .. then it all goes in your file

    my driveway, me and my brother change our cars oil together help eachother out. I'd say do it yourself. If not find a small shop and just take them whatever oil you want put in along w/filter and have them change it real quick.

    It's critical that you check the oil change thread, there is very little info not actually in there. Have a look, it'll answer much more than asked here.

    good timing

    I just had my 6750 maintenance done on my 05 rex 2 days ago at the dealer. I have a Helix UP/DP and HKS cat back. They told me "no worries" when I asked them abotu warrantly voiding. They said only if it can be linked to a mechanical failure (i.e. suspension problem...TBE don't affect that)

    I hope they don't note all your mods in your file. When it comes to major repairs, SOA will be the one authorizing the repair. If they get a whiff of any mods, they will be your worst enemy.

    What's with the 6750 maintenance? I thought they were all 7500?

    my dealer didn't care. im pretty sure only the mechanic that worked on my car noticed that i was catless from the downpipe (i still have a cat in my uppipe). he asked where he could do a straight pipe like that for his 99 mustang lol
