p0430 2010 camaro 2ss/rs auto

I was wondering if any one has found a fix other then tuning the car i have looked at many sites and many posts on here just trying to get something that will fix this issue without a tune. i have installed pacesetter long tube headers with header wrap and high flow cats. most of the sites that i saw said to do anti-foulers on the o2s which i have tried on the rear sensors because that is where i thought the code was coming from but now i am not sure if that was true pacesetter will not contact me back due the them telling me that they were 49 state legal and would not set a check eng light(the reason that i bought them over other brands) additionally i have a CAI, throttle body spacer, and a cat back cherry bomb system. but does anyone have any ideas on how to get rid of the check eng light without tuning the car. since the dealer has already told me that im on the edge of voiding powertrain warranty and i do not wanna do that lol. here in VA dealers are pricks about anything that you do to a car with a warranty and voiding it cause they dont care about the customers. any help would be great

You could try double stacking the anti-foulers if there is room or contact SOLO to see how much their O2 extenders would be.

Interesting that you only have the p430. Since this is only one bank are you sure there are no exhaust leaks?

Truthfully if push comes to shove your screwed because you basically told on your self by discussing your mods with your dealer service department.

They can't void it until something breaks and they make the connection between the mods and the broken parts.

If you not tuning your Running a marathon with boots on.

JRE Custom Tuning FTW.

already ask general motors because i have had so many problems with the car since i got it and the dealer wasnt fixing it so when i called to file a complaint i ask them about what i have had done in specifics and they told me no we cant refuse your warranty claim because its nothing internal in the motor and the only part that it voids is if i went in to the dealer and told them that my exhaust was rusted out they wouldnt cover that or if i said that i was having a problem with the intake they couldnt do anything for me because that is also aftermarket. so ive already ask about everything that i have done before it was done.

They have to prove that your mods caused a failure before voiding a warranty. I would personally just get it tuned...takes care of the code, makes the most out of the mods you have, and really helps driveability and part throttle response. You're not too far from us, I just had someone drive down from your area last week

The only problem being i dont have the money to dumping into the car when the stuff breaks considering the heated seat stopped working today and they have already had to do lifters and they are getting ready to have to replace the motor cause it knocks like a mother ----er if you know what i mean.
