Thanks BOB, not all of this misinformation again 2.2 liter 4 banger still had an increase.

As far as dealer funny you say that cause we install them all the time depends on dealership I'm not worried one bit . Besides that we modify all kinds of vehicles they sell and warranty them as long as installed correctly no worries .

So here's my local service manager and 3 mechanics take on it.
I've owned my 1LE for exactly 1 week today, already put a CAI and scoop on it. Had to go back to the dealer yesterday for an I.O.U, and while there stopped by the service dept to rap with them about it.
Nobody I talked to there had any expectation that anything like an aftermarket intake, or exhaust will be any issue if you completely grenade any part of the drivetrain as far as warranty goes. They did say an aftermarket tune has been flagged in their experience a few times when warranty work had to be done. But the mechanic and service manager had some leeway.

So make friends with your service dept.
And enjoy your intake!

They had pretty sound reasoning though. They said GM knows no matter how efficient your CAI or exhaust. There's no way either or both would be enough to boost your HP to the point of running the engine outside of its designed specs. They said whatever 10-30 HP boost you may get (if that), wouldn't be anything near enough to hurt the engine as is.
Running a non standard tune however can and will cause red flags to go off. If you require major service.

According to the crowd of guys I was rapping with about it. They see modded cars all the time come through for drivetrain work. They normally never bat an eye.

I appreciate that you don't seem to be willing to risk it. But by you constantly telling people that it will void their warranty, you may be passing on your thoughts and not indeed any factual information.

Keep your car stock and be happy with it. For the ones that want to tweak some things, fire away and happy motoring.

If you don't tune our open the motor you are fine. I have PTB, ARH Shorty headers, Solo HF cats, Apex catch can, CAI with APEX Scoop. No tune. 415 WHP and 398 tq. Have had it in for warranty work including cat back NPP replacement. Not a question or issue with my dealer. They are more concerned with my survey on customer satisfaction to GM. Don't open the motor or tune and you are fine.
