best mods that wont void warranty or throw cel

So i decided to make a thread to get members opinions on the best mods they've done that wont throw a cel or void a major warranty.

*I'm sure there have been past threads regarding this, but things change and new products come out so i'm making an updated one.

Thanks!

I'll start with the obvious one. CAI. I bought and installed an long tube injen CAI with hydroshield. You can tell a difference in torque and it seems a little quicker, but the best part is the sound it makes. LOVE IT.

There definitely have been a couple of threads on this. Generally it comes down to what your dealer will bug you about. Some guys on here have had issues with unrelated warranty work after getting headers, while my dealership just commented on how good my car sounds! If you go in for transmission work with a n20 bottle in the trunk howevr, don't expect it to be covered. As for specific products, the VMax CNC throttle body should go totally unnoticed.

any cosmetic mod. The ONLY way you can void your whole warranty is if you get a tune. Outside of that you only void the warranty for the part you replaced.

A tune shouldn't void the entire warranty. If you have a tune and your trunk latch breaks, I think they'll cover it

Performance
Exhaust, intake, TB, headers, tune as well because ours cant be detected so reflash to stock
Cosmetic is the best next to sound. I blacked mine out and dropped her with eibachs and absolutely love it. Body kit is coming up so im excited

OK well yes, I was assuming the OP was referring to his powertrain warranty. But yes, your bumper to bumper warranty cannot be voided by a tune. Again the only way they can void your bumper to bumper warranty is if they can prove that the aftermarket part caused the problem.

Looks like if you remove anything after the last 02 sensor you wont throw a code, this includes a cat.
