Question Ladies need help!!!

Hi guys, I'm asking this question for my friend who is not on the forum and I don't have a clue about anything that has to due with this issue, could someone please help?

Both my friend and I have a 2010 2SS/RS. Mine is still stock, but she has been having some mods done. She put in Long tube Headers and full exhaust and is wondering if they void the warranty and if not can the dealership fix the codes for the O2 sensors?

Thanks for your input, we really appreciate it!!!

warrenty is gone thanks to the mods to the drivetrain, might as well get a tune to make the camaro better and get rid of the sensor error code

Exhaust mods do not void your warranty. Haven't heard of a dealer disabling the codes, but if you find a good one they might be able to. Usually the codes from longtubes are because of cat efficiency or o2 sensors. It's not a major problem, just an annoying check engine light. Any good tuner can disable those codes so they don't come on.

my dealer told me that putting headers on would void it. but if you go in with a problem they would have to determine that the headers are what caused the problem

I think they would spend more time trying to prove that it was the headers that caused the problem than actually fixing the problem

If it is a code for the O2 sensors, I can only deduce that they will "blame" it on the LTs...

Let's put it this way. If you have drivetrain problems and you have full exhaust, and headers good luck getting it covered under warranty. If they deny you, you will have a real battle on your hands.

Relocating the cats is a violation of the Federal Clean Air Act. So yes, it can void your warranty.

I agree - however there are LADIES asking this time, so of course all of us gentlemen are going to offer advice!

My 2 cents - warranty is gone, might as well tune, make other mods, etc. These LS3s are super strong until you do silly things like 12+ PSI supercharger on stock powdered rods and cast pistons , so personally I wasn't that worried about warranty before I did the LPE650 and now I again have a warranty covered by them. But you have to do some serious modding before I think reliability becomes a valid concern on these LS3s.

Let's run a hypothetical situation here:

If "she" has an issue with the car, revert back to stock manifolds/cat's and put the original tune back into the PCM. Take it to the dealer and they will resolve the problem.

Enjoy the car with a full exhaust and tune in the mean time. :-D
