i just bought a new gc 3.8 rspec she come tuesday i cant wait:D:D.
one of my friends was telling me how his dad bought some really good spark plugs for his ram and his dad said he could feel a difference with then new ones. so i was thinking doing this to mine since i think spark plugs wont make a difference with the warranties on the car.
and any ideas on other things the wont void the warrenty?

You can't void a warranty, though you can get a claim rejected. If you install something and say it is gapped wrong or the wrong temperature and it causes misfires and washing walls or detonation and melted piston, than it is on you.

That being said, it is highly unlikely anything like that will happen and you will 99% chance be fine swapping them out. If your A/C breaks or even a red bearing is spun, there is a 99.9% chance your stil have a valid warranty claim. Thye have to prove your mod affected the issue. Much like changing your own oil. It doesn't void your warranty, but if you do it wrong or don't fill it the whole way, your claim will be denied. I say 99.9 because some people are just greedy or stupid, and that is what lawyers are for. If you didn't cause the issue, you shouldn't have to pay for it if you ahve a warranty.

So basicaly go ahead and swap, just do things correctly and you have nothing to worry about.

That being said, I did a write up on plugs and I don't think you will find any difference from a brand new plug let alone an irridium which I know is used on the 2.0t though I am not sure about the 3.8.

I am assuming your friends dad was either a culprit of the placebo affect, orhe had old plugs and the new plugs did help, or his old plugs were gapped wrong and the new ones were right.

But apply the warranty advice to any mod you want to do. Be aware of what it is, how to do it right, the issues it cand and can't cause.

the densos that come in the car, are suppose to be good for 100K miles. Unless there is something wrong with them, I suggest you don't change them. checking them every oil change is a good idea though.

^ and thats because you need a step colder plugs for the added heat.

intake is a good idea.

Get a hold of SFR for a program.

That $400 will give you more hp and mileage than $3000 of bolt-ons would and w/ none of the downsides like noise or dust ingestion.
