With minor mods such as a CAI and a catback exhaust it is realy hard to say that these contributed to causing a problem with the motor and effecting the warranty. So thereforr it would be hard for them to prove that such an aftermarket part has had such an effect. If you think about it , all your doing is taking the sock part that is resticting power and replacing it with an aftermarket part that meets the same specifications and just incresing the size and design to free up that power that was being restricted from the stock piece. Almost common sense if you think about it.I guess warrenty isn't an issue for you guys running these mods?
I'm scared shitless to void mine...
A good friend of mine has a base '08 G5 with the L61 2.2. Seems when she installed a GM CAI, she too had an extra hose leftover. She installed a small filter on the end of the tube when it originally connected to the oem air cleaner. Am I correct to assume this is the same hose in the picture at the top of this thread? Also is this only on the 2.2's with 15 in wheels? Is this also on the 08 2.4 automatics with 17's? Would there be any other "leftover" hoses or problems if I installed the GM CAI unit on the 2.4??For now it would be a good idea to put a filter on the end of the tube -- or fabricate a nipple on your CAI to connect it to. When the pump is running it will suck up any dirt and could ruin the pump. No one makes a header for SAI to mount the valve to...just installing a mount won't work as the SAI exhaust manifold is made to run the SAI and has internal openings a header won't have. IF you can find a dealer that will disable the SAI -- they can do it with the same equipment that they use if you were to put on the GM 16" wheels -- then you could just remove all the SAI components and install a stock exhaust manifold or your coice in a header.
Since SAI supports emissions output you may have trouble finding a dealer to disable it.
