Re: Boss 260 Cam tensioners - question
Ok, looks like no-one's cracked the timing covers on a Boss yet?
Thanks anyway, the job's done and the new tensioners are in. Everything seems sweet. Still pulls like a fourteen year old until the cams come on at 3500, then WOOHOO!!!
Wokka, the warranty seems to be a real case by case thing. My dealer is great - they replaced the throttle position sensor, which was a ford item, but was fitted to my aftermarket 80mm throttle body. If that is not a clear case of a modification that could affect a warranty claim, I dunno what isn't.
With the camchain tensioners, the dealer was great again. No questions asked, so I assume the tensioners were far enough removed from the modified cams to be acceptable under their warranty conditions.
I guess if I went in with noisy lifters, they might not be so amenable to a warranty claim.
As far as you are concerned, I don't think exhaust and CAI should affect a warranty claim for camchain tensioners, but the decision is Fords.
