Warranty or Studs/EGR

Help me out - Vehicle has 85,000 miles and the 100k warranty expires next summer. Warranty just replaced FICM, the vehicle has been very healthy otherwise. Good preventative maintenance, etc etc etc.

So, I can buy a reputable extended warranty for about $1,500. Was thinking last night that instead of the warranty, I should consider head studs and egr delete and maybe some other preventative maintenance stuff and skip the warranty?

Any thoughts here. It looks like the extended warranty doesn't cover much else besides those items.

i would stud it and delete the cooler. I have both of them done and no problems after that. Small things here and there and most of the time you can fix yourself for very cheap.

If you have an opportunity to stud it i would move on that.

I'm in the same boat with warranty coverage, and I'm leaning more on getting another 100k warranty on my engine which would be like 2200 through ford and their new 7 yr 200k warranty. I'm aware I could spend 3500 for studs here in california, but with another 100k warranty for 2200, it only seems like the smart thing to do. Wouldn't have to worry about injectors, turbos, gaskets, head problems, or anything else. I'm at 71k miles and just got $4200 worth of warranty work for FREE. 0 deductable. I'd love to have head studs and an egr delete but it really just isn't in the cards for me. I run my SCT tuner simply till my heads blow again. Then it gets fixed again... for free. Till I want big upgrades, I'll keep my warranty. Until then, I'm running exhaust, intake, and SCT X3 for performance mods that keep my warranty intact.

Hey Met, did Ford say anything about your AFE intake when you took it in for warranty work or did you change it back to the factory intake?

I've had warranty work at 3 dealerships and none of them had said anything about any aftermarket equipment. From what I heard the AFE intake is just quite similar to the stock intake and they seem to not have a problem with it at all.
