    Go fast parts and warranty


    I was talking with one of the local speed merchants the other day and he made mention to me about warranty on these cars and mods made. Now I fully understand the Moss-Magnuson act, and how that applies to the domestic market at least. But I got the impression from him that doing ANYTHING to these cars and the dealer can say tough noogies. So whats the story here? All I want to do is air intake and exhaust. Someone educate me on this please!


    87 Buick Grand National....not running. Sold engine to Slipknot and building way bigger V6 Stage 2.

    03 Ford F250 Crew Cab long bed 4x4 6.0L Powerstroke Diesel, 5sp automatic, and one killer stereo!

    03 Subaru WRX...17" battles to go on, STi foglamp covers, rolling stealth mode except for the stereo. The wifes ride.

    02 Ducati 900 Monster Dark...we share this one!

    dont buy a complete intake ,,buy a drop in filter like K&N,ITG,Blitz,many many brands carry them.
    I dont think any dealer would disrupt your warranty if you added a exhaust.
    Anyway,talk to him and you will know if adding a exhaust will be bad.
    I know a chip,EBC,MBC and many other mods can cancel the warranty of your car.but there are some mods you can take out before you take the car to dealer =)

    SOA will refuse warranty service in the event you install an exhaust and SOA becomes aware of it.

    The dealer may act differently.
