Boy did they....

The note on the invoice went like this...

"BE ADVISED!!; VEHICLE HEAVILY MODIFIED : DME PIGGY BACK TUNER, INTAKE DUCTING AND INTERCOOLER MODIFICATIONS....Aftermarket components not a warranty concern. "

Shoot, they have no idea...I was kind of offended, they missed A LOT with their "39 point inspection".

Fuel system overhauled, FF sensor, not to mention the 100% E85, turbo upgrade, OCC, trans says D1, D2... I'm thinking the startup probably startled them a bit though.

On a side note to the N55 owners with an upgraded fuel pump. When our battery was dying, we got the fuel pump warning on our I-Drive, once we got the battery replaced...it disappeared and hasn't come back.

The battery had and internal failure so the lower voltage probably contributed to the current draw and tripped the code.
Well, ain't that something haha! I just bought a battery charger so I may rebuy the stage 2 LPFP. Thanks for sharing that tip!
