So, I spliced into my cigarette lighter to install some cold cathodes under my dash and seats. I was just curious but my warranty would probably be voided if the dealer saw that huh?

I was thinking of getting the reflash but am not sure if I should take those out first. I am guessing they just use the plug under the drivers side to flash it?

um, your warranty should be fine. unless your mod all of a sudden shorts your ECU and they can prove it, then you have nothing to worry about.

does that include a boost gauge? I thought I read somewhere that people were getting voided warranties for boost gauges. (tried searching)

No freaking way a boost guage should cause warranty issues...
