CAI cold air intake / Loudmouth exhaust question.

I just spoke to my dealership and they said they have no problem with me adding anything to my car as long as I don't mess with the tuner. I called them just to verify what I could do to my car without voiding my warranty. Now, that I got my answer. I wanted to know if I would get any benefit from a CAI cold air intake and SLP Performance loud mouth axel back exhaust kit with out a tune.

I have 2LS and installed cai intake and mrt v2 axleback. Improve the sound, but for performance its the same or slightly reduced after install. Now thats my perception and I do not have before and after dynos to back that up. I asked before and was told a tune would fix that up.

Those 2 items will not affect your warranty. A tune will though.

WOW, so nothing without a tune. Not even worth it. I might just get the exhaust kit for the sound but that is quite depressing.

I had an ingen intake and mr2 exhaust on my old 2010 v6. An exhaust may add 2 hp and is for sound, the intake I noticed low end response and was good for maybe 8 hp, though that lttle amount is hard to feel at higher rpm. On the LLT motor the tunning was hard to mess with and was good from the factory, but limits what hp mods can do, not sure about your new type motor though.

Installed K&N CAI and Flowmaster Force II axel back exhaust. No tune for the same reason, still under warranty & dealer told me the same thing. In addition to the better sound, I have noticed improvements in response and performance.

I think you got the answer (maybe not what you wanted to hear). I did a cat back Borla ATAK exhaust about the first week I owned the car (2011 LS3). The sound is amazing and I am satisfied with that. planning on a new Air intake and then just the waiting game for the tune but hey the car is crazy fast already so it isn't that bad of a trade off.

one other thing....that air intake you linked to is a bit of a pain in the ass. The washer fluid fill tube ends up inside that box. Just my two cents.

Thanks for the reply. Probably going to k&n if I do the CAI. Anybody have any good things to say about that loudmouth exhaust kit?

A friend just installed loudmouth 3 on his SS. Sounds great. I always recommend listening to as many different ones as you can in person and on youtube before you buy. It really is a personal preference, so find the one that sounds great to you. J pipes and resonator changes also produce some nice effects to some.

I would go with the CAI and scoop. Proven results all over this board with that combo.

The CAI, especially mixed with the scoop, will give some good results without voiding your warranty. I suggest the Cold Air Inductions model paired with the ADM race scoop. It has been tried, tested and proven to produce great results.

The Axleback on the other hand won't do anything except make it louder. If you want any kind of performance gain from exhaust without voiding the warranty, you'll want to get a full 3" catback, and even that doesn't really do much. The only way you can get good noticeable gains from exhaust modification is with longtubes (you would need a tune to get the most gains, as well as get rid of the CEL) but this would void your warranty if you took it to an asshole dealer.

Your best bet is to find every local dealer in your area and ask them if they are modification friendly. Some care, some don't.

I have the SLP loudmouth on my 2010. I went with just the loudmouth. It is the most aggressive SLP makes for the camaro. Idk how just the axle back sounds. I went with the full exhaust headers/x-pipe. Turned heads everywhere I went. Just depends on how loud you want it. After heads/cam/intake its ridiculously loud.
