2 more simple tuning questions

Greetings all. Trying to educate myself.
First question: is it the LT headers that blows the warranty or the tune??
Second question: besides reduction in power bump, what are consequences of LT headers WITHOUT a tune?? I have a tune and headers scheduled at ECS in a few weeks and am getting nervous after reading this forum about engine lights, inspections, idling problems etc. The tuner is multiple hours from my house so it's not like I can drop by on my way to work if there is a problem. All I want is another 40-50 RWHP delivered RELIABLY. I am not going to drag race the car. Mostly street driving and the occasional track day. Thanks. Regards, Peter

Without a tune you will eventually end up with codes, besides that you are not getting the most from your mods that were not cheap. To date I have never had a car lose it's warranty from headers and or a tune ever. I cannot and will not guaranty that in writing, but that is our experience to date. With 1000's of cars tuned here thats pretty good odds IMO.

Hope that helps!

There is a ton of talk about warrenty denial but not much about people getting denied.

My Camaro had headers,tune,gears,intake. Got lifter noise. The dealer warrentied it no problem and I never been there before. They saw the mods with no cats ect.
