did it mess up anything on the internal engine part??? if not, then no, they cant void warranty. I think they are just being a bunch of dicks.

Magnuson-Moss law protect you unless all that work was the problem so either way if you have to pay for the fix time they will know what to do. Sorry about your ride sounds sweet and fast.

pcm and ecu are the same thing just different ways of saying it. Power Control Module, and Electronic Control Unit. Check the fuel pump relay, Im not sure exactly where it is, but if the code derived is from the fuel pump, I would try the relay. Call any AutoZone and ask them for a component location, it may not be exact, but can guide you in the right direction to find where its at. Good luck!

did u get your pcm from intense? if u did call them up and ask them if they had a power saver built into the pcm.
if they didnt then u will need to get it programmed again

this happens on stock volkswagons all the time

hopefully this is the problem easy fix
