x2, its not common for one to let go. Especially the VVT garrets. They're pretty solid unless pushed well beyond their limits.

Stock is the only thing that wont void your warranty.

Assuming there's no hot rod engine tuning:
I'd tell them to get that engine fixed, it's covered by a 5yr/ 100K mi warranty.
If they won't change it, it'll cost them a new motor when it's ran until it blows apart.
Sounds more like they're trying to extract $$ out of your pocket!!

I don't have a clue what it's worth? I just know what I can buy the one I want for?? I figured that I would put it on ebay and see what it would bring. If I when with a bigger one. Some one else posted $2500??? I guess theres is really over priced?
