Forgot one that it can do...voids powertrain warranty.
it does not, they have to prove it caused it, they can release as many tsb's about it that they want and it doesnt make it any more legal. Also, most that get tuned have done enough (header, dp, exahust, intake, intake mani, tb, pullies, etc) to get most things voided anyway


bottom line is GM is not above the law and if they want to void your warranty because of a tune they have to prove the tune cause it

/discussion you cant argue with the written law

YOU are 100% incorrect!!! Search the web...you need to educate yourself. There is a TSB on this subject. If you have an engine or tranny problem, they will check for ANY adjustments to the ECM tune -- they don't have to prove anything. GM does not have to honor the warranty when you mess with their ECM because you have altered the basic parameters of the car they sold you. Just like if your aftermarket wheel falls off because the stud broke -- they won't have to warrant that either because you made an alteration to the car. Heck, read your owners manual.

classic example:

Lets say you have your car bone stock except for a tune. You blow your transmission. You take it do the dealer to have them fix it under warranty. They see your car is tuned and say "Your car is tuned, it is producing more then 205 horsepower, the transmission is only built for 205 horsepower. Therefore the transmission is not covered under warranty because your tune made it blow."

again, READ THE LAW GM is NOT above the law, they could write a tsb saying you drive more then 2 miles without stopping and we void your warranty, sure its a tsb, but the law would tell them to f off just like now....it has been said before adn will be said again, and now!!!! they have to PROVE that what you did caused the failure. if your exhaust hanger fails or your lower control arm or your exhaust bolts snap and you have a tune they cannot void your warranty cause of the tune unless they prove the tune caused it. If your tranny breaks or your blow a piston, yes, that is true they can, but not for anyhting, you all make it seem like GM is above the law and can get away with dong what they want cause they wrote it down...this is NOT the case.
Im not saying someone wont try, but you should fight for your [ULEGAL[/U] rights here
