    If you're worried about voiding the warranty, take it to the dealer.

    It may even be covered under warranty.

    I just replaced passenger side and I'm now working on the driverside. I'm trying an experiment with VHT high temp ceramic paint which I hope it will provide a protective coating so there's less stress on the metal. It was only $10 for a can so it's a cheap experiment.

    So far the passenger side has been fine, but it really hasn't stood the test of time.

    Swap in an LS3!

    But seriously, welding it shouldn't and couldn't void your warranty. You aren't doing anything to modify or alter the powertrain.

    the dealer covers this under warranty? I don't think I got the lifetime warranty with my 2010 but it would be nice since replacing them (too often) is a pain in the ass

    I would guess its part of power train but isn't that 5 yr. 100,000 miles?

    I don't know, I'm beyond time and over mileage - with all the mods I'd probably get flagged.

    it was a short lived hope lol

    on the 08

    I have the limited lifetime powertrain warranty that covers the entire powertrain including the exhaust manifold for 99 years. which is great but dealing with the cracked manifolds is a PINtA
