Warranty Safe Mods

Is there any way I can get some mods done wothout voiding the warranty. I would like to do simple things like cold air induction and exhaust, and other fairly simple mods but I really don't want to void my warranty.

Anyone know a way?

Re: Warranty Safe Mods

A K&N air filter should also help

Re: Warranty Safe Mods

XRSIK, how is the herrod exhaust? What did you get? how much? I ordered an exhaust directly from Herrod, it arrived yesterday. I'm getting it installed this weekend.

How does it sound? Loud? Drone?

Thanks..

Re: Warranty Safe Mods

dk_falconXR6 get a BMC filter, herrod's done dyno testing and found this filter better than a K&N.. the cost of this filter is about $165 from herrods you get 5% discount.
