Warranty

Will headers void a warranty immediately? I know about the Magnuson- moss law and didnt know if that applied to everything. Thanks

Do we really need another one of these threads? No, nothing will totally void your warranty. Drive train warranty, maybe. It's not the headers, but the tune that is the big no-no (but seeing the headers makes it obvious that it's not stock). Still it depends on the dealer....there are some that'll look the other way, especially for smaller repairs.

As I understand it, if you get headers you don't necessarily need to get a tune. Headers alone may void the exhaust system warranty but nothing else. A tune would efffect other warranty parts - perhaps the entire powertrain... as I understand it. I may be wrong.

The law always applies. They can not outright void your warranty due to a modification. The issue in question has to be a direct result of the modification before they can refuse the warranty claim.
