Default List of people with dead transmissions

I'd like to compile a list to bring to the dealership as proof my mods aren't the cause of my failing trans. If y'all don't mind, just list your screen name, year/model, mileage, and mods. Thank you.

I'm at 39,000 now and it works perfect some days and others it's a giant PITA.

Just a CAI, catless res deleted exhaust with a cutout and MagnaFlow mufflers, some poor paint decisions, and DoD removed. and slightly moved around shift points...

Thats what scares me about the LS4 wbodys. I was looking at one before I bought my regal for a DD,, Kinda glad I didnt get a GXP. I know the 4T65 E aint a gem even behind the L67, but failing on a stock motor with low miles is not common.

I really like them though, its everything the GTP should have been.

The min. you cut your cat off..they can void your warranty just for that...new about that when my brother worked for a Chevy dealer..and then reminded when they put my cutout on.
Some dealers void warranty if they see a CAI

The dealer will do what they want..I know some will not and some will help you.

Sorry for thread jack:

I recently brought my car to a pontiac dealership without removing a single mod. The techs took a look and said warrenty void then tried charging me 60 some bucks for some retard diagnose fee. I simply gave them the fingure and drove across town and went to a gm dealership. They didnt say boo about anything, did a laundry list of warrenty work on my car + a free detail and wash!

Its really funnny how each dealership is different. My bro sold my uncle his 05 cavy with just a intake which he got free from a friend to the same pontiac and they refused to work on it cause the cai was there.

A friend of mine told me it depends on if they're paid hourly or flag time, the flag time guys will do it regardless, 'cause they want the money.
