Here is a must read:

If it is like the tC--you would have to remove the cat-converter in order to install the header. That would fail you on a smog check and/or visual inspection. Good luck.....

Adding aftermarket parts does not void your whole warranty, just the part that is replaced and if there is later damage that they can prove was caused by your aftermarket part then the warranty on the damage will be void. This is part of the Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act. This page explains things well. http://www.dummies.com/WileyCDA/Dumm...e/id-2669.html

great post "jthistle"
its always good to know just what the law said.

plus it would be funny to see the dealer turn white when you spout that from memory.
