Keep us updated.

It wasn't the headers. The code said it had something to do with a camshaft sensor. It could of and might have failed if my car was bone stock. I am still glad I did this and would do it again. It was a one in a million failure

It's not the cause. It's the situation that's scary (without warranty recourse) but as you said, have to pay to play.

I gave that a lot of thought before I did anything. I have never had an issue with 4 new cars so I figured why should this one be any different.

Most dealers aren't as anal on bolt ons as they were when the cars first came out... plus the dealership has to prove what he done contributed to the failure... which in his case, they can say that his installation of an aftermarket cam did cause this failure and its on him... but who knows. Good Luck...

3 bolt cam or single bolt cam? Single bolt the cam may of broke the pin and the cam turned. If that happened lets pray for no valve train damage.

Thanks. It is a 3 bolt. It wasn't a catastrophic failure, the engine just shut off. Almost like it would with the key.

Hang in there Max, Things happen. I bet the shop that Modded your car will take care of you. Hopefully it's just a fluke and a quick fix.

Sorry guys, it's not good news, but I would rather not elaborate at this time.

Sorry to leave you all hanging.

I have no issues with the shop, am very happy with them and would still recommend them. I just don't want to say anything that may be taken out of context or potentially damaging to the shop for something that wasn't their fault.

I'm sure it won't help either... but it just seems there has been a rash of failures in cammed cars... and I'm trying to get ahead of any possible problem if its something to be watching for.

I researched my decision a lot and for weeks before doing the work. I didn't read one negative review ( and I read many) about the shop or having this done.
