super charger vs turbo and warranty

So I am wondering which would be better for a auto 2012 2ss super charger or turbo? Also would it be possible to get either of them and still keep the warranty? and if not would the supercharger from the zl1 work on the ss, and if so would that keep the warranty in place since its a gm product? oh and what chip would you recommend for a stock 2ss? I mainly just want it to take the speed limiter off.

U would have to find a dealer that would install everything and give u a warranty or just find a good shop no warranty. Plenty of us without warranty and riding!

It differs from dealer to dealer, talk to your Rep and go have a chat with the Service manager. My Twin Turbo kit was installed with 1400 miles on the car and the warranty went out the window. However, my Dealer/Rep will cover warranty items within reason and stopped by on my way home so they could see the Beast. Good luck.

modify the motor, change the tune = voided warranty on power-train. period end of story.

warranty on other things might stay intact, but the drive line of the vehicle wouldn't.

GM is pretty specific, mess with the tune and lose your warranty

if you want to boast you do it on your dime. Why would GM warranty stuff that you changed and put the vehicle out of manufacturer spec?

putting a ZL1 supercharger on the car would be no different than any other because you have to re-tune.

yeah you "might" find a service manager who "might" look the other way on most things, but the minute he is required to send your vehicles data files to GM, warranty is done, no Service Manager is going to risk his job covering up for a customer.

if you get work done by a reputable shop they will give a warranty on their parts and works, but beyond that it's on you.

Not true persay, If you go with an slp supercharger and have an authorized slp dealer do the install and meet the requirements they have a pretty good warranty with it.

should ask this question or move this thread to the FI section. You will get a lot of good responses.

also to use the lsa supercharger a whole lot of custom work has to be done to get it to fit right. For the money you are better off going with an aftermarket kit made to work for your motor.

SLP is 3 year/36k with their warranty, which isn't bad but its not the same as the GM 5 year/100k warranty the car comes with.
