I think my HPFP is going.

Was doing some driving last night and got a misfire. Cleared the codes and the car ran fine under hard acceleration. This morning I started the car and it had a long crank followed by a roughy idle and then went into limp mode. I didn't write the code down from my AP buy it read something along the lines of"fuel pressure". My cars currently FBO and i have no intentions of reverting it back to stock to go to the dealer.

Do you guys think that they will cover it under the recall warranty or will they deny it because of said mods.

Any input is appreciated!

If you're FBO, its a good bet the dealer is going to blame your mods. Just be prepared for it.

That's what I'm thinking too, but in the other hand it's such a big problem that they would know the mods have nothing to do with it :/

It sounds like your HPFP is going. I think most dealers would cover it even on a FBO car. Because it is so common for the pumps to fail.

I hope so. I cleared the codes with my AP and now it's running fine even under hard acceleration. Will see again in the am if the same thing happens, hoping it does so I can just bring it to the dealer

Sounds like a fuel pump but could be other things.
Car Misfires on cold start if one of the injectors is bad.
I had to make the same decision as you and i decided to just get it replaced at a local shop instead of going through the hassle of uninstalling all the mods.

Yeah I'll be stoping it off at my local Indy shop. From what I gather injectors aren't cheap and you need to replace at least 3. All my recalls on the car have been done as well so I'm SOL. all this the week after a brake job lol
