What do you guys think?

I installed an Injen SR Intake on my 2003 GT. I absolutely love the Intake, but I'M afraid my dealer will complain about the Intake when I take it for warranty work. Do you guys think I should take off the Intake and put back the stock airbox? Any suggestions will be useful, thanks!

Take it off before you take it back to the dealer, sometimes they can be a$$es and tell you they wont work on it because you changed the filter. My friend has a CAI and they tell him that they wont work on it, he later took it with the stock air box and they took it in, IMO its GAY! butoh well.

threaten to sue them if they refuse to work on your car. they have to prove that your Intake is the one that caused the problem, by law. don't take any crap from your dealer grin

some dealers are cool. my paseo have some work done to it, the dealers never complain one thing about it...your warranty is with toyota, not the dealers...if one dealer won't work on, then take it to another dealer...

Now I remember, Its called Magnusson-Moss Act.. and it states that putting aftermarket mods won't void your warranty.. Dealers lie about aftermarked mod voids your warranty because they don't want to deal with it.. rice
