Was just having a look on carsguide etc at some new car deals and came across atleast one Holden Dealer offering:

"ask about our Platinum Package Avail--Cold Air Induction, Exhaust, Tune Up, Dyno Slip" with the purchase of a new vehicle, in this case an SS ute.

Might already be common knowledge but for those who dont know? may be a good option to get the extra power without voiding the warranty....

Patterson Cheney Holden do RS packages (Race Sport). They do it in partnership with VCM/Autotechnique.
The packages include suspension, exhaust, intakes, cams, brakes, loads of stuff, all backed by warranty.

yeah a lot of dealers now are developing partnerships with local tuner workshops and offering packages with a brand new car,
you do pay a lot more and dont have any product choice versus doing it yourself, but you do retain complete warranty

I don't think it would be a full Holden factory warranty. More likely a dealer backed warranty if related to the mods, or workshop warranty on mods only.

Yeah holden warranty wont cover a tuned engine, youd have to chase up the workshop that did it if anything failed.

Most CAI's involve a MAFless tune which would void engine warranty. CAIs that retain the MAF probably wouldnt be an issue provided the filter was sound.

[email protected] filters generally arent an issue provided they arent over oiled and contaminate the MAF.
