If your looking at getting a tuner with tunes from Steeda or American Muscle Bama, I'd be inclined to say you shouldn't have anything to worry about. You won't be blowing your engine anytime soon.

You also can be potentially causing some warranty issues, but you can always take the tune off before you go to the dealership. I've heard and read lots about how dealerships can still see you were tuned, unless you unplug the battery for such a time, or drive 50 miles, etc etc. I don't know what's true there honestly. I'm not a person who's too concerned with my warranty. I know that when I swap things out it can cause issues, and that's on me if the part causes a failure.

As for what to pick for CAI...this is asked every week. I and most others probably have Airaid. It works well and sounds good. JLT is probably #2 for popularity. Steeda is awesome too, just some people are nervous to buy it at first because its the only "tune required" intake.
