Groucho said: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.
Defective paint wouldn't have been caused by a Turbo or a supercharger and, I would think, should be covered.
You'd have better luck in a new thread.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?
