Will this void my warranty?

Hello camaro community,

I just recently put my car on order (L99 1SS RS CGM) and was wondering if anyone knew if the following modifications would destroy my warranty:

-American Racing Headers
-LMR Intake
**Vigilante 3200 stall**
-Port and polish throttle body
-NGK TR6 spark plugs
**Dyno Tune**

The stars I added are the things I believe could possibly say bye to warranty, but I wanna hear it from you guys.

Also, (Im a car-noob), what does a Stall actually do?? Does it make any more horsepower or does it make the car shift harder; I dont want to buy it if its not what I think it is, can anyone enlighten me on this?

Thanks,

Grant

Yes and no. All of those parts will void the warrantee for the pat of the engine they effect. But if you have a big problem and get a hump of a dealer, and local GM rep, you will be left to fight for everything. Modders beware, warrantee is for people not modding.

So if it was a problem that didnt have to do with a modded section of my car it would still be covered correct? Like a misfunctioning seatbelt or something

you really wouldn't need a converter like that unless you put a bigger cam in and lower gears. that would cause warranty issues along with the dyno tune of the ecu.

not really true,, a stall even on a stock l99 will make it a much better driving car,, and it will give you a few 1/10's in the 1/4 mile,, check out the g8 forums guys are getting .3+ gain in the 1/4 from just a stall/tune with the 6L80E

agreed it will void your warranty

I personally have a $4000 price limit on whatever mods I wish to add..

I'll track it occasionally for fun but nothing serious- primarily for fun on street

Full exhaust (long tube headers, high flow cats, catback), intake, and dyno tune - (that will give you 40-50hp and really make your car fun).
Then you can add a converter if you really want to haul axx.

And if that's still not enough, my next move would be a nice cam package (+100hp over stock when combined with a full exhaust and intake).
