well i order'd my first mod today from HHP one of the site sponcers

i got a Zoomers catback system,there was 2 to chose from i went with the more aggressive of the 2.

and im going to the dealership on monday to get pricing for a header/high flow cat,parts and install

is it ok to buy the headers and cats from the moparsuperstore and have them put on elsewhere beside the dealer....as far as warrenty goes or should i just order it threw the dealer and have them install

I'm trying to slow down now. All mods in the next 4 months must be done by me with existing parts or products in my possesion. Saving for lt's next.

A lot of dealers won't install parts unless you ordered them through them. Although, I had dealer install my catbacks that I ordered online and I wish I hadn't. They did a very bad job. First of all, the right pipe wasn't aligned and was hanging down. Then when I went to get my headers installed at a performance shop, they took me out and showed me my car on the lift and showed me exhaust leaks that I had. They said it wasn't installed correctly. They fixed the leaks for me, and the right pipe that was hanging down.

I didn't realize that zoomers had 2 options for the exhaust on our cars. Where did you find information on this "more aggressive" exhaust. their website only shows one option for the R/T.

For the Zoomers, go to a muffler shop for install. You can't go wrong. They will have all the knowledge & tools to install them right. Some who had cat backs installed at non-muffler shops, wound up going back to a muffler shop to fix the original install.

I had mine ordered & installed by HHP, since they are right down the street from me...

Here in California, dealers won't install headers because technically they're "illegal". Anything that moves or replaces the position of the catalytic converters is considered illegal. :smoke:

I would not have the dealer do it. It would not change the status of the warranty if they did. All dealers need the approval of DCX to extend/honor a warranty. In fact, the less the dealer knows, the better in my opinion.

Maybe an alarm or other smaller things.....I doubt new headers or what you want done would be covered on the standard 3/36....

You purchased a warranty (car) from Dodge on the parts that CAME on your vehicle.....not the parts that you are GOING to put on your vehicle. Zoomers will be your new warranty for your cat back exhaust system, not Chrysler. Whatever company you buy your headers from will be your new warranty for those parts. Get where I am going with this?

Not unless the part you replace/upgrade causes the issue, and even if it did, the burden of proof is with the dealership, and there are federal laws that mandate certain procedures. So, if you blow your engine, they have to prove that the headers did it. Many, many, many here have already done what you are doing, and never had issues with warranty repairs.

Mod away!
