Intake?

okay my parents arent letting me put an air intake on it because they are saying it voids the warranty. can anyone tell me otherwise from everything i read about an intake should not void the warranty.

only thing it will void is the warranty on the intake. If something happens to your car and the dealer can prove it's from the intake, then you are screwed.

if ur parents paid for the car, I'd say don't piss them off lol. However, as Poorman says, it won't void warranty unless it's proven the aftermarket part made u claim your warranty.

Most of us have aftermarket intakes, and it's been okay. A couple of people had some CELs, but was fixed easily with the help of the forum members.

Call your dealership where you got your car and ask them for sure. IMO it won't void your warranty. Do your parents work for GM and know all of the exact details of warrantys? Its not like they have to know anyways. Just get it and put it on.

I retract my statement. Keep it all stock. Don't want to anger your parents. Especially if they are paying your payment and insurance.

what they dont know wont hurt them!!!

i think

if you have any problems ever just take off the new intake and put the old stock airbox on and the dealer will never be able to prove if you had an cold air intake on it or not

Do some cosmetic mods. You don't want to get into with your parents. Someone else on this forum did that and they moved out of the house, no longer speaks to their parents and even lost the Camaro.

Think about those things first.

Here is a whole list of items you can go thru to see what you can do without causing warranty issues. This is my personal page of my items I have done to date. I just need to post the under the hood cosmetic changes once I have completed them.
