You are aware that GM will no longer honor your warranty, and you are now subject to the EPA $10,000 fine for modifying your exhaust system.

Ray just about very one here has some mod or another done to there trucks maybe you could make a list of fines for all of use:wtf1:You are aware that GM will no longer honor your warranty, and you are now subject to the EPA $10,000 fine for modifying your exhaust system.
Sounds about rightI think the fine rumor is due to modifications done to the "emissions" system, not the "exhaust". The DPF is part of the exhaust, but I believe it is considered an emissions part. I don't think anyone would receive a fine without a warning to "fix it" first. Just my $.02 of course
On gas powered stuff the fine is $1,000 if you take your cat off. I do it a very simple way. I cut the cat in half take out the guts and put it back! I douth on diesel there will be many cops crawling under to see if your cat is there figuring 2007 is the first manditory year!Just save your stock system for warranty work. I'm thinking about doing the same after Christmas and I called my service manager and asked him about it. He said that changing the exhaust will not void my warranty. It all depends on the service manager. I've never heard of anyone getting a fine at all, let alone a $10,000 fine. Anyone know how much the fines really are?
