Depends on your dealer. If they seem real shady then take it off. My dealer is real cool so i dont worry about it. A cai wont void your warranty unless it is the problem

i think ur leaning way behind....

the dealer would want to see that happen....so u have to take em on an 8K ride in 1st gear.

I grinded once like i said b4... i didnt adjust my seat b4 driving...hence i didnt get a hold of the clutch.

very normal... regardless of how you shift or clutch, you are going to grind going into 2nd at 8k rpms.. idk why it does that, but it just does. this has been discussed many times and the solution is to wait about half a second before shifting instead of tearing into it. Your synchros are almost bulletproof, so unless you drive like F&F, you're good
