Just put my BA XR8 in for its first 3000km service today. I have been looking at either extractors, air filter & herrod induction kit for some time & i asked the warranty boss at my local dealer how this would affect warranty.
Basically after a bit of a discussion what it comes down to, apart from extractors. Any mods to the air-intake even a air-filter will void the warranty if they can relate it to the induction. In other words he was saying that if there is a problem such as any faults with pistons etc, there going to blame it on the induction kit! Which i thought was a load of
But i guess there isnt much we can do about this! Only if Herrod Motorsport was recognised as a Ford Dealer we could have a win in this situation! The good old blue oval strikes a blow again!
The other interesting point I heard was that a few of the Holden dealers now offer induction, unichip & full exhaust with in the warranty to most customers. Maybe Ford should recognize the money & effort Herrod Motorsport put into the development of their products! At least D.J.R. has!
