More Power

So I have a 2.2l 2008 manual trans. BONE stock. What can I do to it, thats cheap, does not void the manufactures warranty, and adds some power? I feel like its really slow and can get smoked by just about everything else on the road. Ideas?

not a lot will totally void your warranty. Only the part you swapped and if the dealer can directly blame the after market part for the fault.

Good start but you have to get GMperformance parts for 99% of these otherwise it will void your warranty and well that is just going to get expensive
