this is a question for everyone who has barry's mod done. I have the mod done on my car and i had to cut the maf wires when i did this. i want to take my car to saturn and get a couple things looked at and i was wondering if anyone has taken there car to the dealership with this mod done and what have they said to you, i plan on cover up the wires with some of that wire cover stuff but i was wondering if they would say anything about the mod.

the dealership i am taking my car to is not the one i got it from also so i dont know if they are gonna be stupid about it but i have the warranty and all the paperwork for it so i hope they will not give me a problem

what do u guys think

they tried to tell me they were not going to service my car because of the modification. I threw a code after I had it done but it was becasue the maf was off a tad. They lied and said there was a tear in the intake hose gave me a free one which is in my trunk and the service tech fixed and secured the Ghetto Mod at the dealer. I love that. But if I didnt complain and if Nick wasnt working there they would not have fixed my car.

As long as one doesn't have anything to to with the other, there should be no problem. As I've stated before, I've done 5 of these mods and with 1 exception ( Goofyguy ) we have had no problems or codes. After I fully secured the filter on ( remember my ammendment ) and double checked the position of the sensor in the tube.....there could be no problem. You need to have a good relationship with the service tech's. Show them that you are really interested in the care and maintenance of your car and that you value theire opinion's. A lot of the tech's wil do side job's for you ie. spring's install, exhaust work etc. Offer them a tip for the work they have done, $5., here $10.00 there..you know. Trust me you will be better off in the end especially if it comes down to a questionable warranty repair, they have a lot of leeway. The tube that Goofyguy was given was the only one in the southeast inventory, was the one I had Nick order just in case one of my mods went bad. When Nick called me and told me what the problem was on Goofyguy's car, I told him that I would pay for it If the tube was ruined....it wasn't , so the tech adjusted the position of the sensor and that was the end of it. Just my $.02 worth Barry

only problem was that my sensor moved at mark a tad. That made the car run odd and threw a code. the mod works great just the sensor needed a little more to hold it in place. Not in any way Barrys fault I must have hit a bump or something. A 1 degree angle change will change the maf reading

Mine only took an hour or so and there really isn't any hassle. Just tell Lorie or mike you want Pat to do it.

That's the sweet, sweet sound of your supercharger. Did you follow all the instruction's as well as the ammendment?
