  1. What do you mean by hard? I ask because a good hard shift is what I prefer over some laggy gentle shift. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
  2. As a project, a group of students asked me if they could do a test on 4 CAI. It was the AFE GT, Airraid MIT, K&N and some weird name cheap thing off Amazon. They tapped in a sensor a little before the TB to check flow and temps. There was definitely a flow increase compared to stock, with the MIT producing the least amount of increase. There was also only a 3% difference comparing the other 3 against each other. The K&N and other one did have some increased air temps detected. Now when the stock air filter was replaced with a higher flowing one, the MIT was even closer to the other three. Then they cut out the plate in the stock air box and the MIT was equal with the other three. So my opinion is that CAI systems are a complete waste of money. The stock box is just as good as any of the aftermarket ones, with a tiny mod that a 10yr old can do. The restriction mainly comes from the tube and filter. Change those out, quick mod, and save money. One last thing, the Amazon one was out of spec and didn't line up the best and took some forcing, so I would just stay away from those cheap never heard of ones.

  3. What I find interesting is that most people say they have a lot of metal shavings like this. Now every truck I get, I go straight from the dealer to home and change all fluids to Amsoil. Then when I change fluids at 50K & 100k I have very very minimal shavings. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
  4. I recently got some off ebay to change them out on the wife's truck. A buddy went to the junk yard and pulled some. It was a risk but it worked out for him. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
  5. Are you doing it for looks or not. If just for performance gains then the stock box is perfectly fine. Just get a better flowing filter and change the tube. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
  6. That's what I have. The stock air box, better flowing filter, and the Airraid tube. It all just helps it breath better which is all that is needed. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
  7. Believe what you want, but they can. I have watched it with my own eyes be entered into the system. I promise you a dealer can. They can do it, then go to another dealer 5 min later and it will come up in the system warranty voided. GM doesn't not have the time to deal with every warranty related issue for every dealer every minute of the day in the country. They give the dealer the latitude to do it. The dealer is suppose to be the honest broker, so GM is not paying for work done that they should not have to pay for. Now if the dealer outright voids it, it will usually get reviewed quickly, if they put the warranty on hold, then it can take weeks for GM to make a decision. A customer can complain to GM and if GM wants they can send a field rep out and see if it's legit. Remember it is always about money not only for the dealer but also GM. GM has extremely high priced lawyers to deal with stuff so if the customer takes the complaint far enough they are ready to go. The small shop I work with was once pulled into court for the plantiffs side, and I watched the lawyers chew up everything, even the Magnuson-Moss act when it was brought up. Needless to say the plantiff lost after six months, a lot of money, and warranty still voided. Now you posted the following in a previous post which I find interesting. Why would federal law say dealer can't void warranty except for two exceptions, if the dealer can't void a warranty no matter what, like you say. (Federal law precludes a dealer from voiding warranty just because of using aftermarket speed equipment, with only two exceptions: the warranty can be voided if the aftermarket part causes damage, or adversely affects the emissions or the emissions system. SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) reported that a trade association representing specialty automotive parts manufacturers, the following quotes have been extracted:) Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
  8. Don't ask the dealer. Get ahold of GM and ask to talk to a warranty rep. There are multiple reps, and the one I talked to was a female so them saying, him, means they are bullshiting you. Take the dealer out of it. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
  9. They most certainly can. 2 family members work at dealerships. GM has the dealers put into the system why the warranty is voided. The system automatically voids warranty, them it is reviewed higher up at a regional level. If they put in something that voids the warranty it stays voided. So its up to a customer to contact GM if they want to know why to find out what is put into the system. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
  10. I suggest you find a different tuner because they dont know what they are talking about. The tube has nothing to do with the IATs and timing being pulled. You are probably pulling in hot air at the box. Stay away from open box CAI and go with a closed one. In my opinion if you want a CAI is to use stock box and just have a different tube like an Airaid MIT or something. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
  11. Just join the club or find a local independent dealer. Right now you spend $50 you get free shipping on Amsoil sight. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
  12. Have you actually talked to a warranty specialist at GM. The relations person is to far disconnected to help. Since the dealer didn't actually do any work, no claim was made and nothing wrong with it then they will probably help you out. It's worth a shot. Also ask what was put in the system as a reason to void warranty. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
  13. So your diff is good. So are you just trying to get your warranty re-instated or what? When the dealer opened it up what did they say was wrong with it. On a sort of different subject, since you lifted the truck you should be regearing anyways. My opinion are 4.56s if not, no less then 4.10s. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
  14. I have seen the "out of spec argument" play out in arbitration then it went to court, the judge sided with the dealer/manufacturer. Especially since the way it is worded in the warranty. They even tried the Magnuson-Moss argument and the lawyers chewed that up. So yes they can and do just void warranties. Pay to play. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
  15. At the time I got mine from Summit and did same day shipping. Not sure if stuff is taking longer because of the virus stuff or not. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
