New 2014, adding exhaust void warranty? Oil question too

As the title says it, I just bought a new Mustang GT and wanted to add the Roush axle-back exhaust to make it sound a little meaner. Would this void the warranty? It has 500+ miles on it.

Also, what oil should I be using? I usually use synthetic AMSoil but not sure about the 0w-30? 5w-25?

I too just bought a new 2014 gt. Congrats on your car. Make sure you post a picture. As far as the oil goes just pop the hood and see what weight the cap says to use most likely 5w-20.
The exhaust, any thing cat back you should be fine.

Oil thread. Shots fired. Lmao. Just kidding! OP, congrats on your new mustang and welcome. OP, you will get all sorts of answers about what weight is best and which oil brand is the best. Take it for what its worth. You won't go wrong using Amsoil 5W 20. I personally prefer Mobil 1 extended performance or Super Tech Fully Synthetic oils and always do I use 5W 30 weight. Just a personal preference. Either way, just change that oil on a regular interval and you will be good too go.

Again, congrats on the new mustang.

Just bought my 2014 in December and I was in the same boat as u. Put the axle backs on you will love them! The first time u start it up it will put a smile on your face. As far as warranty is concerned I did my research and 95% of all the responses said that axle back will not void warranty. If you want to play it safe just swap the stock exhaust if you need warranty work!! Good luck and have fun!

An axle-back will not void the warranty. It would have to be proven that the mufflers caused a part to fail, which I can't think of ever happening.

Thank you everyone for the responses.

My oil cap says SAE 5w-20,
So I plan on ordering Synthetic Amsoil 5w-20

If you're gonna do full synthetic, I'd wait another 5000+ miles. Prematurely adding synthetic can prevent internals from sealing properly. You're still well within the break in period at ~500.

That's absolutely not true. There's no need to wait to switch over to synthetic.

It can void warranty only if it is the cause of an issue. Which dealers will say it is just so they can charge you but it won't cause any issues so you should be good. Keep an eye on the dealer though if they do trying pulling that on you

I got my 2014 gt about 6 months ago and have the roush axleback. I spoke to my service deparment where I bought the car about putting in the intake and roush exhaust and they said go for it. Unless they can prove that those parts caused any issues they warranty is good. They also said you especially cant go wrong with Roush.

Congrats!.. I recently put a roush axle back as well (which you'll love!!!!) and I took my car in for some warranty work (door rattles and bad control arm) and they did not say anything about the axle backs. Actually I got compliments on the car and exhaust.

The only thing an exhaust may void would be rear bumper replacement if it gets warped from heat, that's what my dealer told me.

I change my own oil as well. Perfectly fine bro. You don't have to use them.

I change the oil in all my vehicles except my Mustang. I've always changed my own oil. But with the Mustang, since it is still under warranty, I just use that "The Works" coupon which is always available. For $49.95 (this includes our 6th quart), they check the whole car over and rotate the tires. If something is wrong, I would rather they find it while the car is still under warranty. Even though we can go longer, I do this every 5000 miles. It doesn't seem like a bad deal to me.
