Procal Ford Tuner and K&N filter?

I KNOW most use sct ..but I do not want to void my warranty. According to my Ford dealer mechanic..they can tell when a after market tune has been used. If you have have a procal..please post what you think. Thanks.

Re: Procal Ford Tuner and K&N filter?

About the only option you have is to run the ford racing setup and use ford's tuner that keeps the warranty. Of course they would only know if you put a tune on the car (even if removed) if they checked for it~ if they didnt check they wouldnt find out.... but I guess they are more regular about that stuff than they used to be... It wont be the best tune but it keeps the warranty (I believe ford has to install it though). Do they offer a tune for the boss 302 intake?

they do not...and from what i am hearing...there have been a lot of people causing some major problems with there mustangs because of some of the aftermarket tunes. and Ford is VERY aware of what to look for and how to find it...and not pay for it. i do not want to risk that. i wish Ford offered a tune for the boss intake...i would love to have it..it looks good.

I've heard that it does void the warranty... And slightly off topic, but the two supercharger options from ford racing (525 hp and 624 hp) both void the warranty, the 525 only has a warranty on the supercharger itself, not the motor.

There's a lot of miss-information going on with the 5.0s

As has frequently been discussed here-"they" have to be able to prove that there was a problem(warranty concern)that can definitively be traced back to a modification, to void the warranty claim.

true, but if you tune it and try to prove they didnt and get in a fight with them the dealership wins 99.99999% of the time. Since the tune changes so much (or can change so much) its pretty much just an easy target for blame.
