I still want to know if the short throw shifter will be available for the Aisin - I may actually consider buying it if it is.

Good news in here, not that it's groundbreaking, but looking at the GMPP catalog for 2008 it seems that they are working to have a lot of parts and accessories ready for us. To quote the catalog "As for our involvement, we can tell you that there are Camaro enthusiasts from several divisions of General Motors that are working on special editions, handling kits, engine
parts, accessories, and general hot rod parts that should help you keep the wrenches flying for months after your purchase."
So now do I drop an LS7 in the SS or the base model?

It's 33.8 MB, there's just a tid bit on the Camaro, but there should be plenty to apply to the LS3 in there.

So, can someone educate me on GMPP? Do they keep the warranty and all that good stuff? I haven't owned a GM vehicle in 15 years.

GMPP= factory GM parts that do not void warranty

2wik is correct. Perhaps someone else can comment on the current state of things, but normally the GMPP stuff has to be dealer installed in order to retain your warranty, it was that way the last time I had some goodies installed but that was some time ago.......

I don't know for sure, but I still think bolt-ons from the catalog will likely still allow you to keep your warranty, however, if you open a valve cover, you may not be so lucky. I'm sure CAI, catbacks, and other little bolt-ons will be alright.

When I got the TRD Supercharger for my 4Runner, the dealer at first said it had to be installed by a dealer for the Supercharger to have the same warranty as the vehicle (5 yr / 60K mile powertrain). If you installed it yourself then the Supercharger had a 1 yr / 12K mile warranty but WOULD NOT affect the vehicle warranty whatsoever as long as it was installed properly. The dealer wanted $600 to install so needless to say I did it myself.

Here's a little install video I did for fun:



I'd hope GMPP would be the same way. Installing my supercharger was a piece of cake and not nearly worth $600 to have done.

Of course shortly after that I installed a piggy back ECU, smaller pulley, 7th injector, blah blah blah and voided the warranty anyway, but it runs like a champ and has since day one.

I dyno'd to see what was gained and picked up exatly 100 RWHP with the SC and other goodies. I'd think a GMPP Supercharger on the SS Camaro would be good for over 500 RWHP.
