There has been a long discussion in is forum today about a poster who seems to have modded his car, beat the heck out of it, destroyed the engine, took all the mods off and got Ford to warranty the engine replacement. General consensus was shame on the OP.

This is even worse, knowing in advance that what you are doing could create problems and crater the warranty but having a plan, with the connivance of the reflash software maker to basically defraud Ford. This just makes it more difficult for those of us with legitimate warranty claims to deal with the manufacturer.

This is a bad practice and a particularly reprehensible one for the software maker involved. They should be avoided like the plague: if problems develop why would you think they'd be any more ethical dealing with you than they are with Ford?
