they wouldn't.

as they stated unless the modification caused the accident (eg you chopped your springs and ruined the handling/braking etc) then there is no issue.
That's what suprises me. Technically dyno tune might not be legal in terms of emissions...yet they seem happy to cover it without proof that is within legal limits...

In saying that there a heaps of cars with Walkinshaw pack on them the insurance companies happily insure...

Guide below shows that CAI are fine and don't need certification...but it gets murky when emissions are questioned

you're overthinking it.

it's like trying to say a CAI would void your warranty. no they cannot legally void your warranty unless the CAI caused the issue. they can TRY but good luck!

Decided not to go ahead with this as I think I can better spend a grand elsewhere at this point in time...

Part of the reason is also the legality of this, so while I am with NRMA I am not going to do it. If I switch to Shannons I will reconsider again as they don't seem to have an issue with this....
