Hi Bullitt Team:
i want to take my car to have the clutch replaced, due to the first to second shift grinding noise. since i have installed the densecharge upgrade, do i need to remove it before i take it to the dealer?

Thanks for you help.

better take it off, don't take the chance

you could call and ask if it would void warranty if you install it.

i think the only thing for will warranty is svo parts installed by a ford dealer.

i actually checked into a new mass air flow sensor today and the 2 shops i spoke with advised me that i should take my warranty in consideration before i do it. :sad:

I had my 1 - 2 shift fork replaced. My dealer didn't say a word about any of my mods. I did take out the Pro 5 just in case.

My suggestion is to take any of the mods off before you go in for major warranty work. How can you expect them to cover repairs if you have altered the car to get more speed? They can take the view that you altered the car so you can run it faster and abuse it. I certainly would not be taking any chances and especially with something as major as a clutch problem. A bad headlight or tailight is a little different. Just my opinion..... if you make the changes you also take the chances!

Okay, here's my point of view (may not be correct) :smile:

1. If anything goes wrong with your car its up to the dealer to prove that it was your modification that caused the failure. How a MAF sensor or densecharger could affect a clutch is above me.

2. Would the dealer really care in most circumstances? Heck, they're going to get paid by Ford for the warranty work, so I wonder if they would look the other way most cases? At the very least, I would guess it would have to be very apparent the mod caused the failure before they'd raise a flag.

It would be nice to get a definitive answer on this.

Yes I agree, it would be nice to have an answer but no one is stepping forward to give one. So, in the meantime, all my mods will be cautious ones until warranty is no longer an issue. Especially in light of all the quality and power train problems some of the members are having. But you are right Mike, it is only a problem if the dealer or some factory rep decides to make it so.
