    Would having headers on my truck void the warrenty? And if not which ones to go with for the best bang of my buck.

    The short answer is yes they will. However warrenties don't last forever, not long enough sometimes. The best Headers for the money are Pacesetter LT's. When you put them on you will also want to upgrade your cat to dual HFC's and a good pair of mufflers, I like Flowmasters. Do True Duals for the largest HP gain.:great:

    Yup but looking at it from a guy who wants to actully do stuff to my truck the glass is half empty. Oh well either I wait the 8 years or do it and just have my dad work on it because hes a mechanic and has his own shop.

    There are still alot of things you can do to it that will not void your warranty. Like Electric fans, an underdrive crank pulley, a CAI that uses a dry filter (no oil) Volant makes a nice one, a high flow cat and even a custom tune if you keep your stock PCM to pop back in before maintenance or repairs. So see the glass is half full again:glasses:
     
  8. Sdpbob,

    Adding headers to your vehicle should not void warantee....I've sold alot of headers here at my performance parts shop, that I've never gotten a customer return because of void warantee. If your going to throw headers on, match it up with a high flow cat, and a Borla Cat Back Exhaust System. Thoes will work wonders to your performance gains. If you need any help just let me know...

    i was talking the other day to a GM Factory Rep about what will void the warranty exhaust wise since im looking for my truck too, in order to not void the warranty you can only do cat back exhaust. i guess the only way to get away with doing anything else is to know people at the dealer.

    Well my dad is good friends with the owner of the dealership that I bought my truck at, and with all the screwups they did to my truck Im sure I could get it fixed. Well all I have left to do to my exhuast is headers and true duals. I keep hearing about this fan thing, whats that and what does it do to boost hp? Im used to cars not trucks. I need kinda like a break down of stuff to do to my truck.
