For SLP: If you have an SLP blower installed by a certificate mechanic and use the tune provided (unaltered) you can purchase a 3/36 warranty. If I remember correctly it was $600 -$800.. Well worth it IMO

I've gotta say, after just one day of driving around (about 50 miles now) the car is truly a completely different machine. I was worried I wouldn't be happy with the gains (butt dyno) but there is ZERO disappointment. Runs better through the entire rpm range. The tune really helped eliminate the torque management issues. Either that or the VMAX fixed it?

Great car! GM has impressed me with this car. Great gains from bolt on mods!!

Your warranty is toast should you have a catastrophic failure. My good friend Trevor blew his motor in His ZL1 driving it at 35mph. It's not up to the dealer. The dealer Gus Paulos had to ship his ECM to Chevrolet in Michigan. After they determined that no modifications were done to the ECM they then replaced the motor. Of course a tuner is going to tell you that your warranty is intact. He's making money off of you.

I still have temp tags on my car and had to fight with a dealer over a warranty issue. The right fog light housing kept letting moisture in and causing the fuse to blow. They told me gm wouldn't cover it unless it had standing water. Needless to say the conversation got heated and I left with a new housing. To be honest I enjoy my car and treat it as a hobby, hobbies are expensive. So I modded the hell out of it!

In contrast to the fog light story I literally had a piece of lint stuck in my headlight (HID from an RS package) and got it replaced. It was there from the manufacture.

I suggest you find a new dealer...

Thought torque management was for automatic transmission cars and trucks only?

I did too but Jordan at JDP told me that there is still tuning that retards full power under certain circumstances

I feel you, I drive 30-40 minutes just to get good service. I drive by two dealers that suck to get quality service.
