There is absolutely no need for an upgraded TMIC until you've got a bigger turbo and a turboback exhaust, both of which would obviously void your warranty. The stock TMIC is actually huge; pop the hood on any turbo car and you'll find intercoolers 1/2 to 1/4 the size. A Twin Turbo Fairlady 300Zx has two little intercoolers inside the front bumper, each about the size of a paperback book, and that engine can put out 354hp safely (each turbo runing about 9-11 PSI of boost).

hey lovesmysuby04....i have been wondering about what will void my warranty....I have an 04 and don't want to have problems if I put some parts on my car....I went to the link you posted, but I'm not totally clear on what it says....Is it basically saying that just because I put an aftermarket part on my car the manufacturer can't void the warranty....they can only void it if that part is the cause of the problem I am trying to use the warranty to fix? So, lets say I put a catback exhaust on my car.....what type of problem with the car could they say this caused?.....a little clarification on this law would be great.....anyone's help is appreciated.
Yaggi, if you put a cat back on your car but lets say it wasn't installed perfectly, so now your car starts running really bad and you take it in so they can look for what is wrong. Lets say that little install problem causes some internal damage too. Now if they trace the internal prolems back to your mod that was put on, then say goodbye to that warranty. Did you get an extended warranty or are you just talking about the factory one? You have to look into your warranty package if you got an extended one or just call them to find out what is acceptable.
ANY part that increases the power output of your car can void your powertrain warranty. They'll basically say that the stock parts were not designed to handle the extra power and stress of increasing the output of your motor.
Just be careful if you mod your car and expect warranty coverage.
