Read up on warranty law, unless it causes a failure, changing parts does not void a warranty (Magnuson Moss?).

You can also put back your stock equipment before you take it in to the dealership for a warranty claim.

To get the most out of an intake like this, a tune would be required and that might leave some fingerprints on the ECU but if Ford starts using that as a basis to deny claims, they will get a lot of bad PR.

I expect the STs will be handled a lot like Mustangs which get modified very very often. They also wouldn't put a failure prone engine in a sporty car, that's just begging for claims.

Wouldn't put a failure prone engine in a sporty car?????? Obviously you never owned a new 5.0. LOL!

Ford doesn't really care. You could have and after market cup holder and they would blame it on a tranny failure. They will do whatever they can to avoid warranty work.

'I remember the day after I tuned my 2011 Mustang GT ford came out a Bulletin to dealers warning them to look for signs of Engine mods and tuning and VOID all claims and let the customer fight it out with them (as a result of a few bad tunes and knock sensors turned off in said tunes) ... Just remember they have deeper pockets and more lawyers than most folks so if they fight it won't be pretty... Just sayin

All they have to do is hook up the computer and check out peak values and compare to stock. My buddy had a bone stock 2012 5.0 with axle back mufflers. He had #8 issues and it took him 2 months of fighting back and forth with ford before they put a motor in it.
I had number 8 problems but I had full bolt ons. I got the short end....
