Mod friendly Dealership in Tampa Area?

Hey all, will be picking up a 135. I am curious if there is a mod-friendly dealership around. Took the fiance's 135 to Reeves and they kind of poo poo'd any mention of a single mod. I realize by law I can do anything I want for the most part but I would rather not have them looking at me sideways when I bring it in for service.

I don't have anything on my car "yet" but Reeves told me absolutely nothing. I however got the performance center to say exhaust is ok as long as it doesn't remove the cats, but the n55 only has a cat on the DP.

Not sure why it matters if we remove cats here in FL as they don't even do emissions testing any longer. I would really like to do a turbo-back... I just don't understand why they have a fit about this...?

Im really not sure, it might be because the n55 only has cats on the dp and they don't want you to remove the stock dp
