Maybe you should!!I couldn't agree more. I've noticed quite a few people on this site writing in jibberish...makes me want to visit the site less and less.
What intake and exhaust do you have installed?ill tell u what i had a lot of after market parts on it like blittz throttle body controller and intake and exhaust i always used the manual shifting at all time and i would down shift a lot and i would floor it a lot with my throttle body controller on sp3 with sports mode on it got screwed up my car has about 9 thousand miles and everytime i put it in park to reverse there is a big kick and also from second to third gear it kicks also there is a huge delay in the automatic mode when i floor it, it takes 3-4 sec before it picks up its weird dealer confirmed that it was a transmission problem and now they having it inspected.
It's just like any other aftermarket part. If that part is a direct result of a breakdown, than it will not be covered under warranty. If you're ever in doubt of an aftermarket part and worried about your warranty, don't install it. Always research parts you are considering installing to make sure they are reputable and minimize problems.So does adding the throttle control VOID THE WARRANTY, especially on the tranny?
I had asked this in another post but it was not answered
Does it take longer to shift when you floor it in D because of the 8 gears? my local dealer didnt let me test drive one so I am not sure how it isA couple of the "problems" he is describing are already known by a lot of people. The Blitz throttle controller says right in the manual/on the box to consider using the reverse overide switch so that when you put the car in reverse it doesn't "surge" (or have a "big kick"). No secret here. Also, it no secret to any of the IS-F owners that when in "D" and you floor it on the highway there is a slightly longer transition between gears than with most automatics. A dealer with an active "F" champion would recognize these things pretty quickly.
We have a blitz throttle controller we put on our IS-F for a day or two with the Joe Z exhaust and intake, "oh what fun!"
