Warranty Void

Hello, I am new to this site. I wanted to know if I change the mufflers and put on Borla 11792 mufflers on and a cold air intake will this affect or void the warranty?

Yes. It will affect the warranty... The factory warranty will no longer cover the air intake nor the mufflers. All of the rest of the car will remain covered under the warranty.

Thanks. The dealer told me that the whole warranty would be voided, but I still want to get the Borla ATAK mufflers and a cold air intake.

Well it all depends on dealership while some may be cool with mods others will just be a pain. I would think you wouldn't have much issues with just an axleback exhaust like the borla the cai may be a different story because it will directly affect the engine. And although they can't prove that it will hurt the engine I'm sure they would give you a much harder time when the time comes to get repair work on your car. At the end of the day it's your choice to mod or leave everything stock but maybe hold back for a while until you verify with the dealership on the parts they will allow and won't and ask them for proof that a cai or an axleback would affect warranty. If you don't like what you hear change dealerships although for some people I realize the next dealership is far away from their home.

Yes, I bought this 2011 Mustang from a Chevy dealership and this is an extended warranty. I will contact the warranty company and ask them. Thank you for the response.

If you get a CAI and mufflers that don't require a tune you can always swap them if the car needs to go in.

Read the fine print on that warranty, some of them putting other than the OEM replacement in on any part voids it.

don't worry about it...extended wttys normally won't cover anything anyways.

in all seriousness I would do those mods and consider saving the orig parts to put back on if needed (as mentioned by Parker). Note the no tune needed part for CAI's.

newbies are expected to post pics...Welcome to Mevo

Your 2011 Mustang is out of warranty anyway, why worry about it ?

He said he purchased an aftermarket extended warranty, which are mostly useless anyway....

Not necessarily true. I bought my 2011 in 2015 certified used from a Ford dealer. Still good on powertrain until 100K or this September.

An intake shouldn't void your warranty unless it requires a tune. Some dealerships may argue it will, but they're typically wrong. Unless your MAF changes due to your intake and somehow you end up running lean. Find a better dealership.

I have never heard of a dealership denying a warranty claim due to mufflers (axle-back). It makes little to no impact on the motor aside from sound. I'd be shocked if this held up.

Obviously your aftermarket parts won't be covered under warranty by a dealer. Your old (removed) parts may no longer be covered as well. Ultimately that's Ford's decision.

As for "aftermarket" warranty...who knows?

Mug has a good point about if one dealership gives you grief to find a better dealership. This will be valid both for dealership and aftermarket ones. How they write up the claim matters.

If axlebacks and a non tune CAI voids the warranty, that's pretty sad.. If that's the case, larger wheels and tires probably do as well..

My extended warranty covered a new transmission and a/c compressor. Defiantly got my monies worth.
