This must be the precursor to a PI and TSB. Now to dig in the way back machine and find my repair receipts...
This is key. It's just going to fail again. They didn't change anything about the design, and owners might find it difficult to get their vehicles covered because the letter instructs you to NOT bring your vehicle in unless there's a check engine light. Failure of the missing intake manifold will not trip a check engine light unless it is a contributing factor to another fault (P0299, for example). What's worse is, that entire time, you'll be burning more oil (which will poison the catalytic converter, which they won't cover), lose fuel economy, and lose responsiveness/power. Based on boost leak testing, we've seen the OEM valve start leaking after around 30,000 miles, even before it outright fails!It's just gonna fail again. Same as the water pump extended warranty.
