Re: Sydney SRT Club

Yeah, any manufacturer will likely void the warranty if the mod or addition was a direct cause of the damage. However, don't let this scare you into keeping it stock as something like a cold air intake (CAI) or exhaust won't necessarily cause damage if from a quality vendor that has done their homework.

If the chip was a cause for the damage, your friend can possibly go back to the chip manufacturer to cover the cost for damages, depending on their liability or fine print.

I had something similar in my '00 Subaru Liberty when I installed a sponge intake air filter from O2 Rush. It got sucked into the intake manifold and O2 Rush paid to have the intake manifold fully cleaned out and tested by Subaru. Although I will never buy another sponge type filter, especially for the SRT, O2 Rush handled the whole issue like professionals.

Re: Sydney SRT Club

Chipped?
Was it a diesel? or did he get a new ECU for the SRT?

Yeah, he is farked I guess. If you don't mind saying, do you know what manufacturer it was?

Hell, for that price you could whack any big block you'd like in there and have an absolute monster on your hands....although you'd have to give up the MDS

EDIT: Hell, I just checked, you can get a 6.4L Hemi for USD$7,700. Labour must be a bitch.


I hope he wasn't married.

If he was married, he isnt now

All I know is what I posted above after talking to the Leichhardt dealer over the phone (I was simply asking what happens to my warranty if I mod my my SRT engine)

Re: Sydney SRT Club

Dealers are full of shit when it comes to claiming that "mods" broke something.

All dealers are trying to do is discourage you to mod, by telling scary stories. I have heard the same story when I owned Turbo Fords and my brother had the same story when he had a WRX.

However, you do need to appreciate that running a supercharged Hemi, will cause problem if you throw a rod and expect it to be fixed under warranty.

Re: Sydney SRT Club

FYI - I actually had my Jeep Dealer install the RIPP SC :
Quote:
My Jeep has also been registered with Jeep Aust as a Modified Vehicle and I signed the following (which I thought was fair and reasonable):

"Customer has been made aware that any unforeseen complication which arise in the operation of the motor vehicle which can be linked to the modifications will not be covered by the Manufacturer Warranty. Any adverse effects of the modification to the performance of the vehicle are the responsibility of the owner"

Sorry for the uneducated question: what is that and which dealer? I'd like to do something similar- thanks.
