Supercharger 2011 2SS Convertible

I recently got a 2011 Camaro 2SS Convertible Auto Trans and love it. I'm a Camaro enthusiast in learning. I've been toying with the idea of a Supercharger installed but there are several questions I have:

1) Would this void any warranties?
2) How would this impact fuel economy assuming the driving style were to stay the same (even though I know it wouldnt )
3) Cost range; installation time
4) How much would performance improve? I've read roughly 46%
5) Will there be much of a change in how it sounds?
6) Does having an Auto Trans limit my options or does that not matter?

Thanks for your help!

1. Definitely
2. Same I believe
3. 5,000-12,000
4. Depends on which one you get
5. You'll hear it spooling, it sounds cool
6. I don't believe that matters

Yes
Drop in mpgs depending on foot and tune and bigger injectors.
5k-10k w/installation or DIY
40% or more depending on tune and boost
If you change exhaust than yes or if you get cog drive or bov.
Auto doesn't matter...other than lower hp with auto and afm lifters/cam

Well if it voids warranties, then I guess it's out of the question for me at this point. Only 12k miles.

Does an exhaust upgrade provide increased performance or just purely for sound?

get some long tubes and full exhaust it will wake it up and if you ever blow your motor or tranny you can always just put the stock manifolds on.. regardless you shouldn't blow your engine over long tubes unless you drive reckless...

If you go with the E-force Edelbrock SC they offer an extended warranty up to 5 yr 100k miles

Long Tube headers will likely require a tune ... also voiding the warranty. Cat back exhaust would be fine.
