Tunes/headers/xpipe/boss intake manifold

Do any of the products I listed in the title void your warranty from Ford and also can anyone recommend any certain products? I have a 2014 Mustang GT with Pypes Pype Bomb ab and I want to add an off road x pipe, headers, possible boss intake manifold but I'm worried about the warranty but I've noticed a lot of people tune it anyways I want to know how people get around voiding the warranty or they just dont care

As stated they all void at least your powertrain warranty.

What would shorty headers void, just warranty for the headers? I'm not going to get longtubes, don't want the hassles that they can cause with aftermarket cats, or an O/R pipe.

Why do you want aftermarket shorty headers? You can run an o/r x pipe to the stock headers.

Best thing you can do is talk to the service adviser or advisers at the dealers around you and figure out what they can do for you. The boss manifold is a ford product. You can do paperwork with ford racing if you have an ASE # basically to certify you as a technician that can install the product for warranty which is what I did or you can have the dealer install it for you and do a ford racing tune as well. Both options can keep your warranty. The other things.... like barazza43 said. F it. lol. They have to prove that it caused the problem. Your strut blowing out cannot be caused by an x-pipe.

I don't want to run an o/r pipe, but do want aftermarket headers, and I know that replacing the OE cats is illegal under federal law unless they are bad, so unless I could find a pipe that let's me use factory cats, no longtubes for me. Shorty headers let me re-use the factory H-Pipe, get better exhaust sound, and some (not much) HP and torque gains.

You can get aftermarket mid pipes with high flow cats and keep your stock headers and see much better results. No reason really to get aftermarket headers unless you go with long tubes.

Again, that's still replacing factory cats, ILLEGAL. So unless I can get a shorty pipe that can have me use the OE cats, I'll go with shorty headers.

I'm in VA, so we do have state and emissions inspection.

Shorty headers require the same amount of work as doing longtubes and don't give you much baang for the buck.

The Boss Intake requires an aftermarket tune. The Pro Cal will not work with it.

GrabberBlue good to know. I thought they had different ones or something. Oh well. I installed the mani and my steeda tune. Data logged. Tune revisions. Data log. Good to go.

Excellent. I had a chance to review someone's log from a Steeda tune the other day and liked what I saw.

What did the set your rev limiter to?

Congratulations sir. You have just voided your powertrain warranty. I voided my warranty at 993 miles and loved every 35,009 miles I've driven since.

But I got lucky I suppose. But now my B2B warranty has just expired last night coming home. Another 8 months or so I think my powertrain warranty will go "officially" lol.

Enjoy your livened up mustang! I certainly did and do!

I am in VA as well there aftermarket high flow cats that are legal talk to Kevin at Performance Autosport they do allot of tunes and work to fords but they will not install anything that would not pass inspection and the work is top shelf.
