Frequently Asked Questions
Will this void my warranty?
Changing anything on your car including a intake or exhaust can void your warranty, even if it's sold and installed by your dealer.
Is the tune detectable by the dealer
If flashed back to stock the dealer can not detect anything.
What mods do you recommend before tuning?
- Drop-in Filter or Cold Air Intake
- Midpipe back exhaust
What aftermarket intake do you recommend?
AEM currently makes the best intake, we recommend the cold-air version. This intake along with other intakes we have seen will requiring tuning to prevent hesitation.
What about the stock intake?
The stock intake actually performs as well as any cold air intake when fitted with a drop-in K&N filter - just lacks the increased turbo noise.
