I was thinking about doing some mods to my Challenger. However, I purchased the bumper to bumper lifetime warranty and I don't want to do anything that will void it. I was thinking about calling Dodge directly to ask what could be done to the car. Can anyone confirm what will void the warranty? The mods I want to do are: Catback, CAI, and a perfomance chip.

Personally, I would NOT contact Dodge rather I suggest you contact and build a solid relationship with your local dealership. Also, check out the many threads regarding this subject ...some good discussion.

My dealer installed the Corsa exhaust before I bought the car.Couple of months later he installed CAI.Told me those mods do not affect warranty.Performance chip may be a problem.

The programing will be a problem, if you alter the manufactures programming and it causes a problem or if you have a problem and it is related to it then your warranty is out the door.

Again, it depends on the dealership. My dealership service department installed my tuner and will stand behind me.

call up the warranty company and cancel it and get your money back, then you can do what ever you want and stop worring about that useless warranty, you'll have a blower before you know it anyway :bigthumb:

I have two suggestions to see how willing your dealership would be to stand behind you.

Blow your engine or transmission.
Have your dealership put it in writing.

You'll soon learn how far back your dealership will stand behind you.

It says on your signature box you have an exhaust and a CAI. So is that a joke or do you really have one? Did that void your warranty?

If you hate the warranty so bad, just ignore it. If you can't get your money back by canceling it and really are frustrated, just ignore the damn thing and do what you want.

If you don't want to do that, I guess you don't hate the warranty enough yet.

Exhaust can go back to stock although I"m not worried about it.

CAI is my own invention and can go back to stock in minutes.

If you do other mechanical stuff your pretty much on your own if Chrysler wants to dig deep enough into the ECM/PCM/TCM and for major work they will.

You could get flagged for exhaust and CAI but if you fought them hard enough it can not void your warranty unless they were the direct cause of the problem.

My lifetime warranty was free back when Chrysler was going under they were doing everything they could to sell vehicles. I also bought my RT Classic for $30,493.00

I was venting about the warranty and what warranty denial on a different dodge vehicle has done to my head............more like joking.........but still kind of serious............I know it's an affliction only those who have experienced it can relate to............I don't hate the warranty enough yet.............wish I could modify my car..............sure would be nice to have Dodge fix a $6,000 transmission on them this time.............It's true but I'm also messing around..............damn warranty...........Hp junky........:)
