    Getting regular service while tuned??

    Hey all!

    So, here's what I'm wondering. I have done the last couple regular services myself, which are just fluids, but I have the 48,000km one coming up here soon. Currently my car has a catback exhaust, COBB SF intake, and stage 1 + SF OTS map loaded (have the downpipe but holding off..? eep). I understand that the exhaust isn't so much of an issue but the intake and tune are a red flag? Do I have to put my regular intake back in and tune it back to stock so I don't get "red flagged" or do I only have to worry about this if I had a warranty claim that could have been caused by this? Would they flag this for future reference? Any info you fine lads could throw at me would be appreciated. Experiences? Mechanics out there? Thanks in advance!

    3 months of snow and loving every minute of it in my first (but definitely not last) WRX...I don't think I will ever own another type of car after having this one...

    Since SOA and SOC are not related (in fact the two companies probably view one another as competitors) I would not rely on information based on experiences with SOA. It will not be relevant.

    Try the international forum and/or ask at a local meet.
