Chips Void Warranties?

Will a performance chip void my warranty?
Does Ford make a chip that I can purchase that will not void my warranty?

Everything I've read says yes it will void it, if there is an issue Ford can tell if it's ever been tuned. Even if you wipe it clean. Someone else will have to chime in about a Ford tune.

Check out this link: Our local dealer does the programming though. So no Bama chips for now. As far as I know deadsp0t is right-- computers don't lie.

Re: Chips Void Warranties?

never install a chip on your car, you want to just update the tune via a hand held tuner.

yes it will void the warranty if not through ford., but ford offers performance packs for some vehicles that they update the tune on and it maintains the warranty, not the best performance but you keep the warranty.
