I don't regret doing anything, just sucks I did and had this come up but I feel like this isn't a ever day occurrence.
Any updates? Curious to see what they've said!

Side note - anyone had a CEL with low amounts of fuel? Since late Jan/early Feb, I've been getting a CEL with the fuel needle under 1/4 tank, but before the fuel light comes on. Usually pops up after a hard corner, then goes away the next time I fuel up. Just seems like a starvation problem, which isn't the end of the world, but I feel like it shouldn't be happening. Beuller?

No real "update", last Friday they called to tell me, they pulled the header off to reveal a hole in the head (shocker there... haha), and they were awaiting a call back from corporate. I got a call yesterday from them asking me to come down and sign a paper giving them authorization to tear the motor down. When I got there last night they took me though what they know so far, and that they know the car was tuned. They will tear the motor down on there dime to find out why the head blew, if it can be proven the tune was the issue im shit outta luck but if it comes down to faulty parts they will cover it 100%. I did however notice the new head service guy is a looong time buddy of mines dad who I have known for 15 years, he said he didn't know that the car was mine but now that he does he will be doing what he can to help me out. Hope I hear something soon, I need a 2nd vehicle.

Do you have car rental coverage with your insurance? Don't know if it would apply in this situation but worth a shot.

You guys dont worry about the warranty with the tune? I know about the whole warranty thing but I feel with a tune if something goes wrong with the engine it would just be easy for them to point at the tune and blame that.

i would just flash it back to factory tune. i know they can still see if its been flashed, but i'd still try and get it passed them. plus, im sure the intake, header, and exhaust will give them enough shit to blame
