Axle back mufflers.

Will the installation of axle back mufflers void the mfgr's warranty. I am looking for a throatier sound. Any suggestions for a set? I have a 2013 v6 still under warranty automatic. Thank you.

It shouldn't void no warranty but it's up to the dealership say so. Some say yes and some say no.

Just like bullet said it's up to your dealership. My dealership only voids warranty if you use a tuner on the engine. If I were you visit the dealership you bought the car from and talk to them about what will and will not void your warranty.
As for axle backs, if you can afford borla ataks then go balls out! They are amazing. Haha
Good luck!

Okay here's an interesting thought.

I bought my car here in California and am about to move to VA. What should I do when I get out there? Should I pick the best Ford dealer with regards to warranty?

Yes. Some dealerships will work with you and your mods. Others will not. In all cases, any part that was changed will most definatly affect the warranty for that part, meaning if you change the axle backs, they no longer have a factory waranty. If you install a CAI, the intake system is no longer warrantied, and possibly other engine parts. In all cases, talk to a service manager and ask before you install.

No one here is going to pay for your repairs if you are denied warranty work because of an install you did. So, read everyones answers here, but the final decision should be between you and whichever Ford dealership you chose to work with.

Best bet is to write Ford service and warranty division. Ask them. Then when you get the reply print it out and take it with you. Problem solved. I do know that Virginia is not as stringent as Cali when it comes to vehicle mods. But get that answer from Ford.
