    Cold air intake

    I bought a 2010 WRX only has 20k on it. I bought an extended 5 year 100k bumper to bumper warranty. I have a cob AP and wanted to put a cold air intake on and flash to stage one everyone tells to wait due to warranty. I can't imagine the warranty company bouncing a claim due to a cold air intake but I maybe wrong. Any advice on which way to go would be appreciated also it is a aftermarket warranty if that make a difference.

    Thanks,

    Roadster20th

    hello

    first i'd like to point out that you need to get an intake that is supported by the AP (if i remember, it's only cobb & AEM.. someone correct me if i'm wrong)

    second- you really need to talk to whoever you have your warranty with. everyone has different rules and regulations. with the warranty from subaru- an intake cannot void your warranty but i can cause your claim to get denied if they link the intake back to the source of the problem. (ie: if your horn stops working, they cant deny your claim because of the intake. if your engine blows up, they could find a way to blame it on the intake)

    desiree
    your friendly, neighborhood subaru girl

    If you have an accessport then putting on an intake is fine. Be aware AP only works with the Cobb SF intake and AEM. Also nothing necessarily voids a warranty. All they can do is deny your claim.

    Bushwickbill had his engine blown up due to failed water pump. His extended warranty is NOT covering it... And we're not even talking mods here...
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    Like Ingo says extended warranties are completely different than factory warranties

    Mostly all Subaru dealers will give you the same answer when asking about Voiding Warranty.
    What they tell you is that, as long as the aftermarket part you put on the vehicle does not have any causes to what the problem you're having is, then No, it does not Void your warranty. A perfect example would be if you put an aftermarket intake on your car, and you suck in water or anything else that could mess up your engine then you will not be covered under your warranty.

    You signed an agreement. Read that for the specific terms. Anything not in writing on that contract isn't meaningful.
