pretty much any modification you do will void your warranty espically adding a catback exhaust like you want too... so you gotta make a choice exhaust of warranty?

The exhaust will not "void the warranty" on the car. The only thing that would no longer be under warranty would be the exhaust system as that is not original to the car. Any damage that could be caused by the exhaust after it is insalled also would not be covered under warranty. I don't know what the "couple of other things are" but modifications that cause damage will make the repairs required to fix the damage your responsibility.for example, if you put a cold air intake on and the inlet is too low and you pull in water driving through a puddle during a rain storm and that water causes the engine to lock and bend valves then the engine repairs would not be covered under warranty because the air intake was modified with the replacement of the air intake system.however, if you put the exhaust on the car and a power window motor burns out then the power window motor is still covered under warranty because the failure is unrelated. Same as with the transmission which would not be affected by a catback exhaust.So basically if you put something on the car that causes a failure that would not have happened had you not put the part or component on or if that part or component you put on the car fails the repairs are not covered under warranty. If the failure is due to a defect in manufacturing or materials that is not caused by any modification or non-Honda part it is still covered under warranty.hope that helps
