    Ugh. I just want the AP.
    Ask them if they can read the checksum value.

    Used Cobb access port V1's are out there for cheep. I got mine going on 2 years ago for $450... and i have seen them go for as cheep as $375. if you look on there web page they have a power map for most every stage of tuning from a stock car up to maps for a VF39 with sti injectors and a STI TMIC that will put you up past 300+ HP to the wheels. there is also Street tuner available for the cobb V1 that gives you the ability to tweek there maps for your car. don't quote me on this but i think you can send any V1 access port to Cobb and they will put street tuner on it for free.

    And being the noob I am at tuning, is it easy to make an exact copy of the stock ECU and store it (on your computer?) for future use should you need it?

    And regarding this whole warranty denial thing... Would just a downpipe/turbo-back-exhaust WITHOUT any tune at all void your warranty? I ask only because I remember them asking me if I had a turbo-back exhaust at the dealer when my engine blew...

    It is very easy to back up your ROM. The hardest part of doing it is hooking up the green test connectors under the dash. And that is pretty easy once you figure out where they are.

    Warranty denial is going to depend on the dealership. If you have any power modifications most of the dealerships are going to deny your claim.
