Voiding warranty???

Ok, so I picked up the Ford Racing shorty Headers. I was just curious if this would void the engine warranty, or any other warranty for that matter. I probably should of checked this out before I bought the headers. To anyone who has the same headers or any other aftermarket headers, when you have to take the focus to the dealership, do they give you a hard time. Anyways let me know

only the internal piece void the warranty, such as agressive camshaft, forged piston etc, external part like your header, or a cold air intake, catback etc wont be suppose to void the warranty

turbo, Supercharger or NOS void the warranty too

I have the FR shorty headers and the dealership I go to doesn't seem to care at all.
Most of the mechanics like to look the car over and ask me what if any new things I've
done.

it only voids the warranty if it causes the problem that you're trying to have fixed under warranty. in other words, as long as your header doesn't CAUSE the damage, you're OK.

No it won't void the warrenty. But the race header will take off the CAT and they might have a problem with that.
