Warranty questions

I have not picked up my GTO YET. I am looking at the next couple of months. I am curious if anyone has had problems with their warranty after they install exhaust and cai?

I was thinking a full exhaust (to include headers), intake, shifter, tuned... I have been talking with someone from this site about going a little more extreme, but not 100 percent sure I want to get too crazy with an 06 model that soon.

u may get bye with the tune. thats if u flash ur puter back to stock when u take it to the dealer. but it just depends on who u know at the dealership. they may turn a blind eye to ur headers and tune.

I have JBA headers they do not void your warranty. long tubes are a different story, the reason being is they will most likely change out your cats. I have had my car in for warranty work with all my mild mods, and have had no issues. It might also depend on your dealer.

Ok thanks a lot guys. I figured if anything goes wrong I would just flash it back to stock but was worried about the rest. Does anyone know about these slp underdrives, like how much of a gain you can get with them?

I depends highly on the dealership!!!!! So be careful with that. I have heard some horror stories and some good stories. But I personally would go in and speak to the manager of the service department and get his opinion. Do this before you buy the car from them.


BTW - Welcome DallasSleeper

Thanks for the tip and the welcome.

You know it is hard to decide just how wild I want to go with the mods. I drove a demo 06 a couple days ago and was in love. Dont get me wrong I drove the Rustang and the charger as well. Now the Charger was a sweet ride, the Mustang was a POS, but the GTO was INSANE. Noticing how many Rustangs and Chargers I see on the road, you kind of get tired of seeing them. I don't ever hardly see GTOs out driving around. I have the need to be different.

And that is one of the main reasons we are all here today. You will not be disappointed with the Goat. The Aussies know how to build a car.

BTW - Unless you are totally in love with spice red or Brazen orange then I would reccomend going with an 05 and saving $2000.00

The demo I drove was the quicksilver, but I am in lust with the cyclone grey.

But I have only seen 2 06 models in TX when I do a search. That is why I figured I will end up with an 06. I will be buying around the end of Feb or early March.
