My opinion,


1- Performance air filter or pod and snorkel for cold air intake.
2- Exhaust system ( preferably turbo back with dump pipe ).
3- intercooler upgrade with hard piping.
4- tunable chip like unichip, steinubar or chip it..

Mate you would really need to contact your dealer and ask that question.. I had 1 service at nissan and never again, I do my own services and have a good mate that's a mechanic and he helps me when I can't do some things.. Stamped all my books just incase engine blew up but it's out of warranty now so all good..

I would say all of them would void a new car warranty unless you get Nissan to fit one of their snorkels for you...

Washing a Nissan probably voids the warranty.

none of these would void the warrenty unless...

the played a part in something that broke

only grey area is the pod, while snorkel is fine to do, adding a pod or changing the airbox is infact illegal unless its a completely sealed unit... like 4byfor apollo job
