I would say it wouldnt. Only because FMC would have to prove your mod was the cause of the issue. Though it prolly will void any warranty involving the air induction system (ie: airbox, associated sensors, ect.)

any one would like to correct me if im incorrect?

You are true about this but the biggest part to steeda is the replacment to the sensors housing full airbox replacment, which in my case the dealer blamed for my sensor going bad. Still did not bother me to much because these sensors are a dime a dozen but I'm just sharing my experience at chapman ford.

Cold air intake

Just a quick question. I'll probably be in the market for a CAI here shortly again because my friend is paying me 100$ for my current weapon r. What brand would you recommend I know my weapon r tends to throw the p0171 code a lot. I'm just asking for everyone's preference on CAI I'm leaning towards the steeda because it's in a box of it's own and everyone says that it is pretty loud.

Steeda or FS Werks seem to be the most popular that I see. I have the FS Werks its affordable, nice, a little loud for me but definitely helps with overall performance(low rpm bog reduces, more pull in the higher rpm range in 1st and 2nd a little in 3rd)

Are these "tune-required" intakes, or regular bolt-n-go?
