ECU flash

Is there any way this can be avoided with tuners of any kind? Would a regular chip avoid it at the cost of not being as effective in bringing out more power, I just can't risk voiding the warranty but at the same time want to mod so badly.

If you want to mod but don't want to lose your warranty options are limited. Tall to your dealer about what you can do and still retain the warrantu

Can't have your cake and eat it too. Find a dealer that's mod friendly, know your rights under Magnusson moss and carry on.

People are terrified of the BS dealerships feed you about modding voiding warranty.

Dealership is not on board, would suspension be a better route until I run the warranty dry?

Which part of the warranty will I void? Just anything pertaining to those pieces right?

Just ask the dealer you go to what can I do and still retain my warranties. Probably your best bet

Or get PowerMax from JMS. It is supposed to improve your throttle response, without into your OBD port. Meaning you can always remove it before taking your car in for warranty work, yes it is non traceable.
