You're going to need headers, intake and a tune.

For a warranty warrior, get a Cold Air Inductions CAI, QTP electric cutouts, and talk to your dealer about headers and a gear swap (usually they will keep it under warranty if you let them install and buy from them).

If you want to keep your warranty. Headers and intake are best bang for your buck.

If you want to get an L99(auto) to 412 rwhp, you will need a cam.

But if you want to get close to his power, get LT headers, Intake, and some good tires.

A tune will help you immensely and help bridge any power gap that may be there after that.

If hes only got you by a car length, headers, cai, drag radials, and practice can get you there.

Intake, ported throttle body, suspension mods, weight reduction, and a few other misc things.

Ok so everyone is suggesting tune but I think the OP wants to not void his warranty which will most definitely void that warranty

On the other side GM has a performance program I believe where they will install a supercharger and cover your car under warranty.

Dont listen, you dont need a s/c. Suspension mods, headers, cai, tires. You can do it.

HP isn't everything, your starting with a much higher amount of torque. So unless he is putting down the same rwtq as he is rwhp you could actually have a few rwhp less due to starting with a 100tq advantage from the factory.

Also what about gears? Is he still running the factory 3.27? You have 3.45 from the factory, also an advantage to you.

Just a few things to consider...
