i have a fg r6 ute stock, i want to put a full exhaust system with maybe redback or lukey extractors, 2-1/2" pipe straight through, and maybe hi-flow cat. Does anyone know if this will void my warranty as it's brand new.

Also looking into getting bigger air intake (maybe f6 or xr6t), and a capa flash.

thanks.

shouldn't void your warranty, might want to check with your insurance company though.

What other mods does anyone recommend that wouldn't void the warranty?

It's the e-gas so SVI might be a good investment

ford can tell how many times it has been flashed. Not your local dealer but Ford warranty..had a guy with a BF typhoon that blew the motor up and when ford investigated, it had been flashed 45 times, so no warranty for him

Anything you modify will void the warranty on everything that the modified part affects.
If you lower it, they can reject any warranty claims on suspension related items for example.
Basically, if you can prove the modified part/s don't affect whatever you are making a claim on, you should still be covered.
