      So I got just about 500 miles CEL free. I was super pumped and sure enough the light came back on. Same fault! :mad: Light ended up going off after about 50 miles by itself and is currently off. ...

      I wouldn't say this is true as far as warranty goes. Another dealer an hour from me did this with Unitronic and they made the customers sign waivers stating that engine/transmission components could...

      No. I kept getting a P2270 oxygen sensor fault, circuit related. So I got my ECU warrantied.

      To add this this thread. If you go in to a dealership with CEL that requires tech support to get involved, stock or not, the ticket gets escalated to a level two status and the tech will be asked to...

      General consensus shows that tunes are safe. A lot of it also falls on the driver. Constant abuse will inevitably cause some sort of powertrain failure, this also is true with stock vehicles.

      Honestly, since I've been at a VW dealership (11 years) I've only seen maybe 6 cars get declined. More than half was due to turbo related issues. I had a couple with injector related issues before...

      I understand that the car is a few years old. Regardless though, this is what will prevent any warranty work. As stated post before yours, VW does not care about non powertrain related parts when...

      I work at a dealer and there was a customer with a MK6 GTI with APR tune. His turbo ended up going. At point of failure the ECM was able to take a log/snap of when it failed. Showed overboost...

      APR has started something like this on new car purchases. However they offer an extended warranty on their end. I don't think VW will ever off something like this directly.

      That's correct, ECU does store mileage. So if the engine were to have catastrophic failure than I'd say no. It would be a gamble.

      Yup, it came back on. The entire cause of this was 42dd's 02 sensor extension. The first one that was sent to me was incorrectly wired up. So even after they sent me a new one, the damage was...

      You'll definitely know. If you also have the ability to see "live" feed to the app than you can see how much additional boost the vehicle is running. The tap to the o2 sensor is strictly there to...

      Gasket was replaced first time around. When we reinstalled the stock one I reused the gasket. When I put the DP back on I'll get a new gasket.

      I ordered one from USP. Theirs looks good. I'll do a quick inspection of it once I get it.

      Looks like my issue is with the ECM. I've got one coming, hopefully it will arrive by Tuesday. I believe 99% the incorrectly wired 42dd O2 spacer harness caused this all.

      Faulty ECM

      So I got the green light to replace the ECM. Pinned out sensor to ECM and that checked out OK. I'm 99% positive this started with the O2 extension cable I got from 42dd because the wires were...
