Which Cold Air Intakes Do Not Void My Warranty?

Hey everyone, I am thinking of getting a Cold Air Intake soon, but I wanted to know, which intakes would not void my factory warranty, or do all of them void the warranty?

Thanks

Just a CAI shouldn't void your warranty. Roto-fab's claims on their own site that theirs won't throw any codes.

One of the best bread-n'-butter CAIs for this car, without a doubt.

An air intake will not effect your warranty in any way. Pick which ever one you like.

None of the cold air intakes void the warranty and most of them dont throw codes. And dont worry about all they hype about wich one is best or makes the best numbers. They are all pretty much the same so just pick the one you like the looks of best. Because unless your going to add forced induction or build the motor, a cold air intake is mainly about looks and bragging rights. That being said, I went with the LateModel Racecraft intake... They have the worlds fastest and quickest 2010 camaro for a reason!

Does CAI's CAI need a tune to work?

Pick up the May issue of GM High-Tech Performance - they test, review, and compare 7 CAI's for the Camaro.

And no, a CAI alone generally won't affect your warranty unless you really piss off the service manager. But just be careful when you go in for warranty claims... if they suspect you've been racing they can use any excuse to not cover repairs, including CAI's. As an example, if I went in for a broken half-shaft, I would probably put the car back to stock first including the intake.

You should not have any problems. They are not as good as K&N claims though.

Simply installing a CAI won't void your warranty. However, I always recommend to customers to read up on the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and to also speak to your service manager before installing any parts.

Please check out our LSR CAI, we offer a kit that can be used both with or without a tune:

  • ~15HP & 12 ft/lbs TQ Max Gains at the Wheels with no tuning, ~35HP & 38 ft/lbs TQ Peak Gains at the Wheels with tuning
  • High-flow Lifetime Air Filter
  • Velocity-Stack Inlet smooths incoming air
  • Made in the USA
  • Lifetime Warranty

Let me know if I can help you with anything.

only thing I have ever seen a Hot Air Intake do is make more noise and reduce MPG..

true Cold Air comes from under the car, most of these systems are pulling hot air from the engine bay..

That Cold Air Inductions one looks to be a sealed box.. Roto-Fab and some of the others that just have an open filter (or one that is supposed to seal against the hood) just suck engine bay hot air from my testing on several of my vehicles.
