If you use the power, you'll pay at the pump.

Keep you foot out of it, won't cost you more.

Just a note of caution about this, should you have problems the warranty is quite limited:

http://www.fordracingparts.com/downl...html#302-303/z

Quote:
Ford Racing total aggregated liability per qualified vehicle under this LimitedWarranty is $8,000: Each covered component has its own aggregate value, which when combined shall not exceed $8,000 in total parts repairs, except in the Province of Quebec, where the cost of parts and labor are covered. The maximum liability for failed parts by component category under this Limited Warranty is as follows: engine assembly parts $5,000, transmission assembly $1,500, and rear axle assembly $1,500. Under this Limited Warranty, Ford Racing retains the right to replace any failed components with remanufactured parts for the life of the warranty.

I believe that to be wrong after looking closer at the Ford Racing parts web site. that is pertaining to superchargers.

Focus St power package. follow link and then follow
Warranty Availability link on that page. # yrs or 36,000 miles whichever comes first.
http://www.fordracingparts.com/parts...KeyField=24026

which will lead you to this page
http://www.fordracingparts.com/annou...2012_Packs.pdf

the link you had if you'll notice is a bit confusing because it is on a page with the other mention limited warranty for coverage but follows the supercharger section.
http://www.fordracingparts.com/annou...erchargers.pdf

I could be wrong but after looking at the pages I linked above it looks as though it's 3 years or 36,000 miles.

No, this is the specific text about the warranty coverage limits for any FRPP products covered under the limited warranty. It's explicitly stated in the catalog, however it's hidden from the old 2012 warranty guides.

http://www.fordracingparts.com/downl...PP_Catalog.pdf

The coverage is 3 years and 36 k miles, but subject to the monetary limits stated in the catalog of $8000 total.

It does not state that it is limited to the superchargers only as you claim their separate pages on the old catalog indicate.

The 2014 catalog makes it clear to me and others on the Focus ST forums that this is not the case.

The monetary damage limits apply to all the FRPP parts subject to the limited warranty provided by Ford Racing.



It would suck to blow up your engine thanks to FRPP and have it not covered as the long block is over $6000. $6732.71 at retail for the complete engine assembly.

Below is an email I received from one of the authorized Ford Racing Parts dealers.

I also ordered the kit, and am waiting for it to arrive as to have it installed. I have 3 weeks before leaving for RCU, then MOB, then the Sand Box. So I'm trying to get this done ASAP!

Dear Scott,



The Factory warranty stays in effect for all repairs not caused by the parts you change. For any repairs caused by any of those parts you listed, Ford Racing and Ford have a 3 year/36K warranty.



Here are details from Ford regarding the Ford Racing parts warranty and how it interacts with your factory warranty and those parts: http://www.fordracingpartsdirect.com...20Warranty.pdf



Unlike other distributors, we have these Focus ST parts in stock and ready to ship.



Very Respectfully,

My lovely gf happens to be a lawyer, whom I had read over the document. She asked a few questions (she's not as car literate as I am) and looked at the factory warranty information as well spoke with a family friend (Dave Sincliar) who owns a Ford Dealership. So long as only Ford Authorized parts are used on the vehicle from a Ford Authorized Dealer, and installed by a Ford or Lincoln dealer that documents the work. Then the factory warranty is STILL in effect! The girlfriend would not let me order if unless it met two criteria. 1) It didn't make it loud and noisy 2) It didn't void the warranty.

So there you go, mystery solved. The factory warranty is STILL in full effect. Just use 91 or better octane fuel (Shell / Mobile-Exxon / BP are the best ones) and you're okay. I also asked about a better intercooler, and so long as the installation is flawless, all factory parts are installed back on the vehicle it would make it hard for them to dispute that it caused any harm to any components. They would document it, yet the fact that all factory components are still there, and it's helping with air intake temps, it's hard for them to dispute that it would harm anything (words from the service manager at said dealership).

The problem is the tune and spark plugs alone are enough to void the factory warranty on the power train (engine and transmission) should you have an issue related to the increase in torque after the 3 year/ 36k FRPP warranty.

It gets very murky after the 3/36 k point should you have an issue with said components, and this doesn't clarify anything.

It's clear that if the problem is not caused by the tune it's covered by the factory warranty, but anything done to the power train is subject to the $8000 limit for total coverage by FRPP as provided in the linked document.

So you'd better hope that they know what they are doing.

Basically they cranked up the boost / raised the torque limit and combated the heat by lowering the heat storage capacity of the spark plugs by dropping it down two heat ranges over the stock plugs.

Oh and also since you're quoting a third party rather than FRPP themselves that doesn't mean much to me, as Ford Racing Parts Direct.com is a vendor trying to sell parts, not an official part of Ford Racing. They are also advocating warranty fraud by telling you to take off the aftermarket intercooler in the case of a mechanical problem with the car.

First of all an intercooler isn't likely to cause any problems, but even if it did removing it just to try and sneak the car through for warranty service is nor recommended nor wise.

Then why would Ford or a Ford/Lincoln authorized dealer state that they would need to do the install to keep the warranty?! Why not any ASE Joe down the street?!

I also asked about a better intercooler, and so long as the installation is flawless (nothing is butchered and looks like a drunken child installed it), all factory parts are installed back on the vehicle (active shutter system, clamps, bolts, panels, brackets, etc) it would make it hard for them to dispute that it caused any harm to any components. They would document it (on the VIN and vehicle history), yet the fact that all factory components are still there (active shutter system, clamps, bolts, panels, brackets, etc), and it's helping with air intake temps, it's hard for them to dispute that it would harm anything (words from the service manager at said dealership).
I never said anything about swapping it back to the factory hardware for service work. My woman would not allow me to do shady stuff of that nature, and I'm not looking to get into any legal trouble.

Another question for you, since you seem so enthused and knowledgeable about this warranty information over a dealership. Why would Ford still do the 3 year 36K mile warranty (being the most crucial) and nothing beyond that?! If you own one (Focus ST) and purchased yours brand new (like I did) then you know what all is covered under the 3 different sections. 3 year / 5 year / 7 year. Why would they void everything after the 3 years?! If it's going to handle for the 3 years, then why would it not take it after that?! They will KNOW if you modify anything else; ECM logs, tool marks from changing parts, etc. They will know if you're hiding something.

I will probably do one thing that the dealer will NOT like. I'm putting a oil catch can on it. Not cutting that factory hose (it'll sit pretty in the glove box - not that it makes a difference) as I'll get all new hose and make a pretty little mounting bracket and place it somewhere I can drain it at easily and often. If they can find some reason that a oil catch can might ruin my vehicle, then by all means I'd like them to show me.
