LS3 or L99?

L99 adds the trouble of AFM which you will want to turn off with headers, which means tuning, which means voided warranty.

LS3 you can do quite a bit of exhaust tinkering and leave the OE tuning alone.

A cold air intake is easy to swap on. I'd start with that. If you ever need warranty work, it just takes a couple minutes to swap the OE airbox back on.

Header wise, on an LS3 you could do shorties and high flow cats and not change the tuning. It could all be swapped back to stock manifolds and cats in an afternoon if needed. That will give you a nice sound and decent hp bump. Long tubes will give a much better hp bump, but should then go with tuning to optimize the AFR and avoid CELs, which may wipe out your warranty if your dealership feels like ratting you out.

Start off by talking to and creating a good rapport with the service manager and advisers ... Ask them what you can mod without voiding your warranty.

But if the after market parts are GM or GM certified it shouldn't make a difference right?

Depends on what lines. GM doesnt make any headers and the air intake isnt available yet

Modifying your vehicle will not void your warranty. A warranty repair can only be denied if the issue in questions was directly caused by a modification. The issue that people have with headers is that they are often accompanied by a tune, which alters the operational parameters of the engine. That lets GM off the hook for the engine warranty. Typically people start with an air intake and cat back package and save the headers for later.

I don't think you'll be having many issues with the cold air, but headers often require a tune that can effect your warranty. It really depends on your dealership.

If you got short tube headers you might be able to keep the warranty as they do not require a tune.
