Are we able to do any of these performance improvements without voiding our warranty?

GMPP has hot cams out, I believe headers as well and an exhaust so far that I know of.

Intake

I'm sure GMPP will offer an intake kit for the camaro, because they offer one for the silverado/tahoe/suburban V8's and it doesn't void the warrenty. The only down side is that the intake for the trucks runs about $400, so i'm sure the camaro's is going to be atleast a bit more.

At first I'll probably just get a good dyno-tune and maybe a cat-back system depending on how it sounds ...I'll wait for the aftermarket to catch up a bit and see what becomes available and what kind of gains can be had before I start buying a lot of parts.

The hot cam in the LS3/480 crate engine option is rated at 480hp, so i would definitely try to get that cam plus intake, headers & cat-back exhuast, & dyno tune. Should get you real close to 500 hp!
