Intake question!

Good morning all! Im new to the site, and got a few questions. I Recently bought a 2008 Cobalt Sport. And love it btw. But i'm interested in starting some mods.
The first mod im interested in is the Intake. Now my car has the stoke air intake box, but im kinda low for cash atm. What would be the best bet for me as of right now? Is it worth buying a Con filter to replace the box, or what should i do?

Intake

You will have to buy the Intake that GM supplies (~$400)

Anything else will void your warrenty.

replacing your intake will not void your warranty.

both of your are wrong, about the warranty. depends on the dealership he has in his area...

anything changed to a vehicles that can be found to have caused the/a problem will void a warranty. if you have a strict dealership, leave your car stock unless you don't care about warranty and are willing to pay for problems you may run into.

if you have a laid back dealership, mod the hell out of it, as long as your not doing force inductions nitrous etc, taking the motor apart and rebuilding they should still cover most things that could go wrong.

the dealership has to be able to prove that whatever you did cause the problem. most lawyers and judges are going to take the word of a dealership before they would you or some shade tree mechanic. just keep that in mind. i mod my car, but i also accept the fact that if something goes wrong i'll have to pay for it if they think/feel one of my mods caused it.

Well if you are mechanically inclined and know what you are doing then you wont have anything to worry about but if not just be careful cause you will pay quite a bit.
