You've tried to discredit my research and called me "naive" twice now.
I've owned mustangs since the 80's. I've built every one of them. Turbocharged, Supercharged, etc. I litterally can't be naive. I've researched this and gotten answers from both Ford and my coverage company.
You're being ignorant at this point.
SELECT FORD PERFORMANCE PARTS LIMITED WARRANTY Rev. February 14, 2021 Ford Motor Company, The American Road, Dearborn, MI 48025, provides a Limited Warranty on select Ford Performance Parts and as described herein when installed on late model Ford vehicles. This warranty works in conjunction with -- and does not void -- the Manufacturer's New Vehicle Limited Warranty. It is valid for the original retail purchaser of the vehicle and is transferable to subsequent vehicle owners.
Let me quote this again:
Ford Motor Company, provides a Limited Warranty on select Ford Performance Parts
THE FORD MOTOR COMPANY PROVIDES THE WARRANTY. Thats all that needs to be said.
Its 100% covered by an aftermarket, extended warranty from a 3rd party since Ford deemed it as not voiding the original warranty.
Anyways, I found my answer about the stock intake box and this new throttle body elbow.
The best option is to buy a GT500 lid or make a lexan cover and be done with it.
Can't wait for it to arrive.
These shift points need help. Hopefully it drives a little more sporty with this kit.
I'll find out soon.
I mean, I'm not gonna tell you that you're right or wrong, since it entirely depends on the aftermarket company. But I also know from experience that aftermarket companies love using any loophole they can to not pay out. Sure, the FP parts warranty doesn't void the original warranty, but the whole reason it runs concurrently is because it covers the involved parts and not the rest of the vehicle. What do you think happens when that concurrent coverage ends? If Ford wouldn't pay for it under powertrain (5yr/60k) or its own extended ESP plans, then why would the aftermarket company? I'd definitely check what their policy is regarding modifications. If they don't end up sending out an adjuster to inspect the vehicle and ask what the dealer thinks caused the failure then obviously there would be no issue paying out, but for major expenses (like an engine), they almost always do. Just because Ford makes this doesn't mean it's not a modification, so it should fall under those rules.
