Question about dealer and Rotofab...
 
So my Z is due for an oil change at the Chevy dealership and I am worried about the Rotofab CAI that I installed and the fuse pull. Will the dealer techs put it on record that I modded my Z and void any warranties? If so ill have to put the stock intake back on. I don't really want to cuz it's a PITA but I will if I have to. Any of you out there have any problems with your service dealerships? Any experiences regarding this? Thanks in advance everyone!

My car is not here yet but it is on it's way. I have bought a rotofab and the dealer has it to install as soon as the car hits the ground. So I do not believe you will have a problem since it is a no tune part.

The Rotofab CAI will not void your warranty.

I think the general rule is as long as you don't do a tune. I took mine in yesterday for hood alignment and going to where I bought it for a free oil change tomorrow, and I have my Rotofab and fuse pulled, I'm not worried. In fact when I was at the dealer I told the guy the fuse is pulled, so if your guys say the exhaust isn't functioning just leave it.

Plus they have to prove if something goes wrong with your car that the intake is specifically what caused the failure, and that isn't going to happen with just what you are talking about. I wouldn't worry about it.

Speaking of, did you guys know you can have a dealer install a SLP package and, according to the service manager at this dealership, it doesn't void your warranty. The one package I saw wasn't a CAI, but a high flow air filter for the stock housing, headers, and a tune that comes from SLP and is downloaded on your car. It's not something I'm interested in, but, if someone really just wanted a little extra power or the growl of headers, it might be a way to go. A little expensive, like $3000, and I think that is just ordering the parts so plus the labor. And it's not that much extra power, but hey. You might have to go to an actual "SLP Chevy Dealership," or maybe not, I have no idea.

You will be fine. I have been to two different dealers, neither one said a word about the intake! :nod:

Ok, didn't mention the CAI or headers, but the rest of your mods they flipped a lid over, right?

Hello sspddmn,

I just wanted to come in and confirm what many of your fellow forum members are saying. You don't have anything to worry about with the mod done presently. It will not automatically void your warranty. A warranty will only become void when an issue has occurred with your vehicle and that issue is found to be the result of a modification done to your vehicle. That would be determined by a dealer's diagnosis. I hope this helps.

Awesome! Thanks everyone for your inputs. Gotta love this forum :)

Innocuous modification. Highly recommendated! :nod:

My dealer told me that a Roto Fab cold air intake is fine as well as the Mild2Wild wireless exhaust controller. As long as I stayed away from a tune all was good. This is all I'm doing to my ZL1 until the warranty is up.
