GM cold air intake

I'm considering changing to a cold air intake. Has anyone used the Gm unit or know how good they are. I know it will keep my warranty in tact.

Don't be fooled by the warranty warning they give you.

It's only voided IF the aftermarket part is the reason of the problem you get (if you get one) so you should be 100% fine with any intake (if you were doing this only cause the fear of a voided warranty)

If not..gl!

Correct. Give this a read. And here is some info on air intakes.

If you have any questions feel free to hit me up.

Thanks for all the help as the dealer preaches warranty issues possible.

Sorry to thread jack, but what is a 2011 RS/2SS LT?
Is LT for long tubes?

I have never seen an aftermarket intake cause a warranty issue but I will have the GM onbes once they are available which I am told should be soon!

Go for it

There are plenty of good cold air intakes out there, don't let warranty dictate which one you get... besides, I doubt any dealer other than possibly the one selling you the intake and installing it would honor any warranty work relating to induction

(with the amount of dealership mark-up on parts and labor rates, you would be able to replace any sensors or related parts that could fail)

Thank you, that thread about air stakes really helped me out in deciding and understanding what I need to look out for.

I'm going to take a stab in the dark, but I bet the price on the GM intake is going to be higher than the balls on a giraffe.........just guessing.

I've waited MONTHS for GM to release their intake. Was even stated by a GM higher up that it would be October. NOTHING. They didn't even keep us informed of the progress.
I said screw it and bought the Vararam and have not looked back. This intake is KICKASS. GM's will probably be the ol' L shaped design anyway. If you want that design there are plenty of good ones out there now.

I wrote to GM accessories trying to find out when the cold air would be available. Here is the response that I received today.

Mr. Oakes,

We had word from GM that the air intake kit was under engineering
review because it is a new part. They claimed we would probably see it
late 2010 but when we called earlier this week to check on the status
they informed us it was discontinued. Guess it didn't pass the tests.
My apologies

I guess I will look for another.

And my gm rep tells me its is slated to be released soon. This doesnt sound like GM's answer

What would you recommend for mods on 2014 ss camaro?

Keep in mind, mods that wouldn't jeopardize my warranty.

You are fine with intakes and cat back exhaust. Suspension upgrades are safe as well.
