I've just fallen in love with my car all over again.
I'm glad you're enjoying it man! It's always fun seeing a customer's first reaction to our Bama tunes haha. I felt the same way the first time I experienced a custom tune and remember thinking "why didn't I do this earlier?". Just wait until you upload the 93 Race tune...
FYI - this is how addictions start you know!

Not quite! If you load a custom tune to your Mustang, your warranty is not voided automatically. There's more depth to it than that.
If for some reason you were to have drivetrain issues, a dealership has to prove the modification or tune caused the failure. If they can't or find the failure was caused by something else, you'll still get the warranty service.
Keep in mind - this is only if the dealership checks your PCM for a custom tune. If you were to have an alternator failure under warranty, there would be no reason for them to even check the PCM to begin with. Thus, you would be covered by the warranty again. As you can see it's not a cut and dry process. It truly depends on the situation before your warranty is considered voided or not.
I hope this helps clarify things for you. Let me know if you have anymore questions!
