So I went to my dealer today...

For the **** of it I asked a salesman about a tune and how it voids your warranty. He then told me "not if you let them do it. I have a 2010 SS and they tuned it for me.".
Ok. This seems too good to be true lol. I was like so If I buy headers and have them install and tune it I can keep my warranty and hes like yeah lol.
Thoughts?

Lol!
Forget about a damn warranty and mod the car with quality performance parts and a good Lsx tuner. You'll be fine!

Some dealerships do honor the warranty as long as they do the install.

We handle the tuning for a local dealership that sells brand new Camaros & Corvettes with Magnachargers/Edelbrocks and other assorted mods. With them installing it and us tuning them, they honor the warranties for the customers. They also roll the cost of the upgrades right into the vehicle loan which is very convenient for some.

What Chase said.

To be clear, GM will void the powertrain warranty. So the dealer has to flip the bill for whatever warranty work needs to be done. So make sure that it's in writing. The first thing that GM gets is a picture of your car on a Tech2, to prove to them that there is no tune.
