Working at a dealer comes in handy. We dont really mind covering things under warranty. Unless is obvious that the aftermarket part caused the failure. We have a few people comming in here with full exhaust, superchargers etc on there GTO and other vehicles. But in some cases if we were to warranty a part that was damaged due to lets say a supercharger or something, and GM asks for the failed part or parts back. Which they inspect, and find something they shouldnt have, they can charge the dealer back or even have the customer bring his car back for a GM rep to inspect.

Well, maybe they could say that the car is now soooo fast that the speed is causing the paint to come off.........

Seriously, I had one of the injectors making a nasty ticking noise, I thought it was a lifter it was so loud. I told the dealer that one of the lifters was ticking and they told me it was because of the headers...... WTF?!?!?!? It took some looking into and I found out what it was on my own.....

For the sweet sound of power,

How bad was the noise (I'm assuming it was making a noise)when you brought it to the dealer? Did it increase with RPMs?

Aftermarket Wheels and a Dead Link

I don't have a lot of experience with forums, in general, and this is only my second post, here. So, I don't know if it's all right to resurrect this old thread. If I should start a new one, then let me know. Thanks

Anyway, I was happy to see this sticky, because I just bought a '06 GTO, 1 1/2 weeks ago, and I want to do some modifications. My concern is that it still has about 3 months of original bumper-to-bumper warranty, as well as another 12 months from GM certification.

Unfortunately, the original link ( http://www.enjoythedrive.com/content/?id=8124 ), that started this thread, is no longer working. I tried a few google searches, but could not find anything more than other forum posts on the subject. It would be great to have another, working, link to some verifiable/trustworthy information.

From what I found in these forums, the Lingefelter CAI, that was on the car at purchase, as well as the catback exhaust I just ordered, are highly unlikely to void any part of my warranty, beyond the replaced parts. However, I am researching a staggered wheel setup, with 245 front and 275 back tires, along with some sort of suspension work. I'm considering a full Pedder's system, or I might just take it piece-by-piece. How could these changes affect the rest of my powertrain warranty?

You'd have better luck in a new thread.

I don't see how the suspension would cause an issue. If you broke something like a drive shaft or clutch, it's possible the dealer could point to the wider back tires/added traction as the cause.

BTW, I have a Pedders Street II and 245/275 staggered setup. The Pedders is great. My first time truly pushing the car to its handling limits, I had the "fastest Pontiac" around the autocross last weekend at Pontiacs in the Park, and I'm not a frequent auto-x participant. I blew it in the 1/4 though....
