What can I add to my car without voiding the warranty?

I have a v6 Camaro and would like to add some mods to make it faster. I don't want to void the warranty. Ideas? I don't need to make it crazy fast but I would like to add some more power.

Look. I know. I'm hilarious.

But CAI? I don't know much about your car but I added a Rotofab with no tune and unless, well I dont want to jinx it, but the warranty should be intact.

Also maybe a cat back exhaust, leave the factory manifolds and cats in place and go aftermarket mufflers and pipes.

You can't do all that much, although it depends on the dealership you would take it to for warranty work. Most likely the only things you'll be able to do are a catback and CAI. Call the dealer and ask, however, some can be fairly generous and allow tunes and such.

You can add anything when they ask questions just say because race car




On a serious note you can Basically add a CAI and Cat back exhaust without having issues with warranty

Not possible the OP has a 2012 V6 and they can not have any form of headers. The exhaust manifolds are internal

Yeah but how's that really work out with the wife. Let me take a stab at it. When you buy a Camaro mod it's all for you and that needs to be "your money." But when she gets something for the house it's for "both of us" and should come from "our money." Sound about right?

A VMax CNC Ported Throttle Body will make your car more responsive and deliver quicker acceleration ($160). Well worth it and an easy DIY.
