    Go fast parts and warranty

    Howdy,

    I was talking with one of the local speed merchants the other day and he made mention to me about warranty on these cars and mods made. Now I fully understand the Moss-Magnuson act, and how that applies to the domestic market at least. But I got the impression from him that doing ANYTHING to these cars and the dealer can say tough noogies. So whats the story here? All I want to do is air intake and exhaust. Someone educate me on this please!

    thanks!

    dont buy a complete intake ,,buy a drop in filter like K&N,ITG,Blitz,many many brands carry them.
    I dont think any dealer would disrupt your warranty if you added a exhaust.
    Anyway,talk to him and you will know if adding a exhaust will be bad.
    I know a chip,EBC,MBC and many other mods can cancel the warranty of your car.but there are some mods you can take out before you take the car to dealer =)

    SOA will refuse warranty service in the event you install an exhaust and SOA becomes aware of it.

    The dealer may act differently.
