I’ve posted this before, but what’s with all the warranty fear? I mean, these cars are fairly simple and inexpensive to fix. I think a new LT4 is something like $9000. Not exactly cheap, but that’s s worst case scenario. It’s not a $40,000 engine like a M5.

The "suggested retail price" on an LT4 is just over $16k, so yea you're right it's no crazy expensive BMW/AMG engine but definitely not cheap.

Warranty is valuable for much more than the engine though, which is still $15k + install/labor.

A tuner here in socal gave some insight that HPTuners should have a fix in the upcoming weeks software wise....

and this only voids engine/transmission warranty.... at least thats what my dealership won't honor in case something mechanically fails which is fine with me

An LT4 crate motor is ~$14k, but Iím seeing about $9400 for a GM replacement engine. Still not cheap, but thatís an absolute worst case scenario. Unless youíre unlucky enough to have some freak failure that destroys the engine. I guess that would kind of suck.

For most repairs youíd go to a dealership for, having a tune is totally irrelevant. It might result in a denied powertrain warranty claim depending on the situation, but itís far from black and white. Working in this industry for over 15 years, Iíve seen a lot of shit. Nobody is going to question a failed water pump, an oil leak, or other ďnormalĒ warranty issue. But come in with a rod hanging out of the block, and youíre on your own.

But that doesn't keep your warranty now does it.
You must be so fun at parties....

The issue is from a dig. You won't see it on a road course. I've been on Watkins Glen a couple of times with this car and haven't seen it either.
