Making this change could very well void your warranty...

Theyre going to have a hell of a time proving an aftermarket intake was the cause of anything.
It won't matter if Stellantis/FCA makes the dealer send in pictures of certain engine components and they see anything other than stock.

It absolutely will matter. If you have a rod decide to make an appearance through your block there is going to be a miniscule chance your air intake had any cause. Aftermarket parts dont void your warranty unless they were a cause of the problem.

He could just switch back to the stock airbox if he develop any engine problems, problem solved. I also agree with another poster saying the stock is very functional but looks like trash.

After pulling out my hair trying to decide, I ordered the legmaker today. I also got to drive my buddy's jailbreak with the legmaker back to back with my car (stock) and the sound is incredible. I too was worried about an "open" intake and was going to get the K&N one as it's "sealed" to the intake scoop in the hood but I don't really care about more performance and bought it just for the sound. I don't care about looks either as it's under the hood which no one really sees, me included lol.

I don't think they can void warranty over something like this unless they can prove this modification specifically caused the item that is being warrantied. Not trying to get into a whole debate about it, let's just hope none of us have to ever find out. besides, I'll keep the stock air box and just swap it back in if something catastrophic happens I guess.

B Woody is my favorite intake for the hellcat platform 100% the loudest whine, even louder than legmaker, and on the Bwoody they give you a heat shield plate unlike legmaker. I used to think 400-500 bucks for an intake was insane but now owning a Supra the typical intake is 600-1400 bucks for that platform but it's money well spent to hear the induction sound/turbo flutter and scare pedestrians:ROFLMAO:

They don't have to prove anything to you on the spot, they will simply say we are denying this claim. Now what do you do?



Magnuson Moss Warranty Act
Doesn't help with a modification where you replace the factory CAI. It's designed to protect you when you use replacement parts like a non-OEM filter itself. They've been through this many times and no OEM is afraid of Mag Moss. They will deny your claim and now you need to lawyer up yo fight them and good luck with that.

First, find a dealership that isnt a piece of crap. Second, get in writing how the cold air intake cause his rear taillights to short out.

A good dealer is definitely good to have but for a major engine issue, FCA will demand pics and computer scans and any evidence of mods. So even a good dealer can get pushed aside in a major repair.

And sure, anything related to the engine or powertrain should not affect other things on the car so probably no issue there.
