I'd have to study the small print Rob.

Short answer is, most probably as most manufacturers would use any plausible excuse NOT to honour the warranty, whilst in the real world it makes diddly squat difference to the sturdiness of the engine components.

Looks good but 8-13 hp increase is a no no.

As in it wouldn’t offer those gains?

Lovely to meet you Steve. My wife was amused that at 1000 on a hungover Sunday morning, in her dressing gown, she was sat at kitchen table, talking about cars, with a man she’d never met before 😂

I agree. Unless dyno figures can be produced, I'd be wary of any power gain claims for intake kits. With my previous ride (A45 AMG 420hp), an owner removed all the intake pipework so that the turbo intake was open to the air, and there was no measurable power gain on the dyno.
