So I am seriously thinking about eventually doing a catless uppipe for my 05 GT, primarily for peace of mind mostly because of the uppipe cat failures that the 05 appears to be prone to (potential power gains/reduction in spooling time, etc. is not a bad thing either :P).
I have read several posts on here and other sites like Nasioc about engine failures not being covered under warranty by some Subaru dealers when an aftermarket uppipe is installed. This seems stupid if the OEM part specific to the Legacy is a flawed design, but still a consideration since I happen to have a silver level extended warranty on the vehicle.
People have mentioned Subaru dealers or shops that are "aftermarket friendly" as far as warranty is concerned and will not fault you for a proper installation of an aftermarket part. Does anyone have any idea of where these places might be in the Denver/Boulder area? There appears to be a 200 dollar deductible if I have get the Subaru repaired at a different shop from the dealer I bought he vehicle from, so it's not a huge deal if any shop recommendations are not actual Subaru dealers.
Any advice or options here? I really would hate for a tiny little cat to cause 2500+ in damage to my turbo in the case something does go wrong (obviously not planning on it but things do happen...)
