Straight pipe and warranty. Unanswered question

I have read all the posts about this but I cant seem to find the answer i'm looking for. I have an aftermarket exhaust, 4 inch turboback, no cat, just muffler. I've had plenty of warranty work done with no problems. Mechanic even complimented me on the sound of it. If I delete the muffler does this change anything or am I in the clear cause I have had work done with no cat already?

As far as I know a dealer can NOT void your warranty for aftermarket work/modifications. If you have a problem, they can not refuse warranty work on it unless they can prove the modification caused the problem. Somebody posted the actual law reference here lately, can't remember where...Try searching for it

And if they did what would you do?
Do you have the money to fight Ford?

If you still had warranty with the aftermarket muffler you should still have it without

I'm sure there's plenty of avenues to try before having to go into a legal battle. The Dealership isn't FMC, so you could push the issue up the chain to FMC or maybe see if another dealership would abide by the laws. And sometimes, persistence works; Can often get people to do their jobs just so they don't have to see/hear you everyday that their not doing it.

Come on now, I stated the fact of the matter and your answer was just, 'they should if they already did work with mods'.

Im pretty sure the law is the Magnuson moss act. But it states that the dealer can not void warranty with parts that are carb certified for street legal use. Unless they can prove that the added part caused the damage somehow. If emission components are removed they can deny you warranty work no matter what the cause or problem is. I don't think you will have a problem with removing the muffler since they have already been working on it with out a cat.

Just so there's no confusion, I was saying I was only about half right and that you seem to be the correct one.
