not many mods you can do and retain warranty, but try Black Mac performance at morley. Macinerney Ford. or just give centre ford a call and ask em . APC may be able to do some work

yeah, they usually do it so they give you warranty on all the parts they install and effect while ford still covers the rest. I'm leaning toward them for the sure shift kit and the stainlees exhaust system

anything done under warrenty will void the warrently if ford finds out about it.

eg, if they find you have an edit, kiss engine/turbo/gearbox and diff warranty goodbye.

other than that, if your not to worried check out um.

http://www.xtremefordtuning.com/ i think it is. WA guy, heard lots of people on fordxr6turbo.com give him great feedback. had around 400rwkw on stock engine, and 550 or so on a custom engine.

Probably just a custom tune is the way, then you can just revert it when you take it back to the dealer. Even just an exhaust without a custom tune can send these cars into limp mode.

Lots of people get edits and get away with it. some even tell their dealers and they are fine, its a risk you have to take though.

the only thing that you will have a problem with warranty is when something you have changed is the cause of problems.

example if you change the exhaust basically everything else will still be covered. but if you change the suspension anything attached to it wont be covered. if you have steering problems because of your new suspension it wont be covered. things like that.
