Yep but what haven't thought of is, that the dealers dont authorise the warrenty FORD do !!!As for the dealers recomending herrod exhaust, he is a herrod dealer and will make money from the sale where if you went to the local exhaust shop he would get nothing. Business is business' even you should have worked that one out.....

Re: **Warning** FPV are taking notes

I know my local dealer propably because I worked there.But let me give you all an example of how these service blokes think.If they do not know you and you do something e.g. mods etc they tell FORD as quick as they can e.g.
Last time I was there,they said to me check out this fool.They walked me over to this black xr6 turbo,on his windscreen was a WSID sticker with 5 passes ticked on it.
I asked what did you do,answer=reported it straight to FORD and the warranty on that car was void instantly.
I thouight you slack p-----.But they have a job to do I suppose.I am posting this so we are all aware,cover your asses when you do something and dont make it obvious.

Re: **Warning** FPV are taking notes

I went down to Knox Ford today to get the Herrod helix spacer ($280) and asked the guy there (Camron) why they (FPV) were takeing notes. He said to see what people are doing to there cars and what would be good for ford to do as there main line in there performance parts range. He also wanted to know the car rego and VIN !!!!

Re: **Warning** FPV are taking notes

Yes the rules have changed, and yes he had asked "how has it run " I asked him what he ment, he asked if i had run it at Calder. I told him "NO" as i haven't, and that its only done 2000km, I also told him that 1/4 mile time dont worry me as the roads arn't drag strips (NOT) !!!!!! Cant wait to get there and give it a go.
Throttle responce is better now, The helix gizmo only took me 20 min to put in, easy !
