Will these mods void warranty?

Hi I have a 2011 Camaro SS/RS and I have a few questions about what will avoid the powertrain warranty and what will not.
Will any of these mods void the powertrain warranty?
1. 1 7/8" Long Tube Headers (replace stock headers)
2. Upgraded Camshafts
3. Upgraded Cold Air Intake (K&N Cold Air Intake)
4. Removal of rear catalytic converters (replaced with pipe)
5. Removal of all catalytic converters (replaced with high flow catalytic converters)
6. Throttle body
7. Professional Tune

I do not know much about cars...yet. Thanks for helping out.

Will any of these mods void the powertrain warranty?
1. 3" Long Tube Headers (replace stock headers) they don't make those
2. Upgraded Camshafts yes
3. Upgraded Cold Air Intake (K&N Cold Air Intake) no
4. Removal of rear catalytic converters (replaced with pipe) no
5. Removal of all catalytic converters (replaced with high flow catalytic converters) The high flow cats replace the 4 factory cats. So again, no.
6. Throttle body no
7. Professional Tune Yes. Bye bye powertrain warranty.

Comments are in red. Please try to use the search feature in the future.

Also, moved to the bolt on section

Most of those mods will axe the warranty but you gotta pay to play. Heck, half of them are illegal in Cali. Give us a call and we can go over some options.

Didn't notice he was in Cali. Yea that means #1, 3, 4, and 5 are illegal for you.

Warranty Its all in the hands of the dealer.
Illegal Most cars are illegal in one way or another... tint, no front plate, modified exhaust... etc.

Moving every freaking thread these days... I am not sure how that started but man, seems every thread is needing moved.

Actually, American Racing headers just announced the soon release of a Cali legal Shorty header system. It probably will still void the warranty, but for those in Cali, this is a great bolt on mod. You can see the video on their home page.
