does aftermarket rocker arms, such as comp or crane, void the factory or extended warranty?

umm they will void your shit in a heartbeat. people are going to say it wont but are they gonna pay your bill when the dealer wont warrenty it. call ur local dealer and ask before you slap them on.
obviously oil pan gasket, radio issues, window issues are all fine. but if you have engine issues and they see u have rockers, who knows what htey will do.

It will void the warrenty on any valve train malfunction, the new rocker arms change the geometry of the valve train. Has to be a stock or equivalent item to remain under warrenty.

They void your warranty but if anything f@cks up put the factory ones on torque them down 21 foot pounds tighten it up and play dumb as hell! :angel: :D you have to abuse the 160,000km warranty if you can suckassssssssss!

I am sure they would void the warranty but with a proper install I can't see anything failing. I would imagine you'd have a tranny issue before and engine issue with the added hp. Are you going to go with the self-adjusting or the ones you have to set the lash on? The first ones are an easier and faster install. Let us know how it goes.

there has been a TON of write ups on what rockers etc for these LS4 cars... Do a search and it will take you to the right place. ;)

I would not unless you work at the dealer . But as long as the stock stuff was back in and you were a customer that serviced you car there I think they would turn a blind eye because techs can tell when bolts have been touched after factory. But as long as you spend money there I am pretty sure they would'nt mind making some waranty time. But the guy that just comes in when he thinks something is gonna be free well they will F with him before they fix anything for example "can not duplicate complaint", "adjust,lube, balance" I have learned it pays to pay the extra $5 dollars for the oil change at the dealer and to be a likeable person while there.

I really doubt that a dealer is going to pop off the rocker covers to check and see if there are aftermarket rocker arms in there. Just put the stock engine cover back on and go in. BY LAW THEY HAVE TO PROVE THE AFTERMARKET ROCKER ARMS CAUSED ANY DAMAGE, Look up google for the name of the law.
