What mods will void my factory warranty?

I've been doing LOTS of reading the past couple weeks and have learned a LOT.
So much info on here...
Simple question since I haven't found the definitive answer...
I've read that a tune will void the factory warranty...
What about the intake spacer? Throttle body? Thottle response?

Will they void it, and/or what other mods will?

Thanks

None of these bolt-on mods will void your warranty unless damage is caused and the dealership can prove that one of your mods caused it. Mod away, my friend, mod away.

But the tune will, right?
I've also read that a tune doesn't do much on a manual.

Same with the tune. Unless it there is damage and it's proven to be the cause they can't do anything.

Where did you read that? I'm pretty positive the ECU tune is the same for autos and manuals. The TCU tune is just the difference between the two.

The presence of modification will not void your warranty, that is against federal law. A warranty claim can be denied if the issue in question is a direct result of the modification. More info at the link below.

Will This Modification Void My Warranty?

I read it on one of the threads on here I believe.
Someone was saying to save your money since the tube on the manual really didn't make that mucb difference.
Does the tune improve throttle response as much as the add on, I think it was the Vitesse?

The tune adds a nice, noticeable bump to throttle response, but nothing near as extreme as the capabilities of the Vitesse throttle controller.

And I don't know who said that about the tune. I noticed a slight bump in power, but you're talking less than 20 whp. Just like high flow cats or an intake. Everyone acts like it's suppose to make the car twice as fast and it's just ridiculous. It's a solid and safe off the shelf tune. For close to the same price you can definitely get a dyno tune if you have a DI experienced shop around. But, the little bit of power you'd gain through a dyno tune over a flash tune I doubt you'd even be able to feel anyway.

I was looking at the flash tuners and the Vitesse.
Elite catch can is on its way, then probably do the resonated x pipe and glass pack muffler rather than the muffler delete.

All of the same stuff I have. The muffler delete isn't loud at all with the resonated x-pipe if that is what you are worried about. It's very soft, smooth and mild.

This is what mine sounded like with just an intake, resonated x-pipe and the mufflers deleted.

Sounds good, I'd like it with a little deeper sound.
I know it'll never sound like a V8, and I'm cold with that.
I was thinking the glass pack might make it a little deeper..

Meh, it doesn't have to be a V8 to sound deep. I don't even like the way V8's sound anyway. I know, very small minority. But if the glasspacks deepen it then you'll have to let everyone know since that is what I always see most sixers trying to accomplish.
