Possibly best to read your warranty contract.

Modifications usually do void the warranties. Read yours carefully before doing and mods. If you are thinking this will make a huge difference in performance on your car, you're wrong.

You have a nice late model car why would you want to put in crap that will hurt perfomance and economy and make your car look like a beater 1993 civic.

The only way the intake will void the warranty is if the dealership can PROVE it caused whatever problem you may need serviced. A friend of mine was denied warranty coverage several years ago when he installed his intake. The problem was, the driver side window motor was blown. They told him his car was modified so it wasn't covered. That was BS and since laws have been passed b/c dealerships were seen using this as a money making scheme. Install your intake and enjoy.
