No problem guys. I had a run in with the dealer yesterday. They told me I voided my warranty b/c I removed my cats. The last time I checked the damn clutch has nothing to do with my cats being removed.

Void

Does Turbocharging or Supercharging void the warranty?

Only if you break something because of it.

Defective paint wouldn't have been caused by a Turbo or a supercharger and, I would think, should be covered.

I had a B&M LeakShifter on my transmission for a couple of thousand miles (just a couple of weeks) when the T56 grenaded on the freeway. After a pathetic initial stab at fixing the problem-- a simple drain / fill on the tranny, which did nothing and put my wife and daughter at risk-- it became obvious that they were completely incompetent. The dealer floated me a raft of sh*t, saying first that someone had put gear oil in the tranny (which was crap) and then that the shifter caused the failure and thus voided the warranty. I called bullsh1t and asked them to document the failure mode and tell me exactly why & how the shifter contributed to the failure.

Turns out that the tail bearing had failed first, taking the rest of the transmission with it. After a good old-fashioned Mexican standoff, they replaced the Tremec under warranty...even remounting the B&M.

This was a grand lesson. My car has not seen the inside of a P-P-Pontiac service bay since, and nor will it, barring a catastrophic failure such as a rod swinging freely through the case as it oozes chocolate mousse.

Aren't you a bit outside the factory warranty anyways?


Nice description of the engine.
