While I'll agree that they CAN void your warranty, there are MANY documented cases of dealers doing warranty work on tuned Camaro's. If you're worried about the warranty, it would be a good idea to talk to the local GM dealers to see what they say. YMMV.

sure there are cases of that happening and if you have the "hookup" with your local GM dealer and you tell them whats up im just saying in my experience if you have done anything that could affect the dependability and drivability of your car i have a feeling your dealer and General Motors as a whole aren't going to be to fond of saying " hey buddy we know you changed the tune this engine was designed to run and we know you did all this stuff that COULD have a correlation to why your (insert problem here I.E tranny,rearend,heads, valve-train, etc.) failed but we like you so were gonna fix it on good faith"

i dont see that happening.Now sure say its something completely not related to a mod you have done like say your cars electrical system goes and you have done all mechanical mods and there is no way you changing the things you did could affect it then of course they will honor the warranty.

But you hear crazier things happening all the time remember im just a guy whose had quite a few new vehicles and ive modded them all this is my 3rd 5th gen that i have now and just dealing with the various dealerships its been my experience that they don't want to give away a single red cent and any courtesy you do receive there is always an ulterior motive behind everything but hey that business ......imo if i was to worried about a warranty i would've bought a kia or a camry i bought my car to drive hard have fun and enjoy personalizing its performance to fit my desires

Best of luck to the individual who started the thread

If something big breaks it not up to the dealer
Its in GM's hands then and that friendly dealer has no say in it .

Why head bang? That's what he's saying pretty much, all the dealer has to see are the flashed times the PCM has had and it will be reported to the GM reps and warranty is ova! Lol

You must get an inspection every year in Texas! After 95, they plug into your OBD port and check for codes. You can't have any lights on your dash or you will fail! If they look under your car and see you have a piece of straight pipe instead of cats,hooked up to your headers, you Fail!

LOL... this is simply not true. You go to an inspection station in Harris county and you will fail the first check. The law has changed... only one not ready is allowed and you have two. But then I'm sure your tuner in LA knows the emission rules here.

If you're talking about rear O2 codes... He would have 4... Maybe more? I had 4. Except he's tuned. He'll have 0.
