    Just ordered a aftermarket driveshaft bc the factory cannot make one that doesn't break. Was told if I installed it they would void my warranty. So they can stick their cheap a$$ driveshaft and this hellcat up their a$$ I will go buy a mustang. Message me if u r interested in owning a one..

    Will not void your entire warranty. Per law, it must be proven that the aftermarket part caused the issue that you're doing a warranty claim on. So, if you have an aftermarket suspension and a suspension component fails, they can deny that. But.. if you have that same aftermarket suspension and your radio stops working, they can't deny that warranty claim.

    Also, you could have a Ford dealer feeding you that same line of crap on a Mustang, too.. some dealers are mod friendly, others like to claim that any mod instantly voids your warranty, but it is not true.

    Like it was said above, they can not void your warranty under the Magnusson-Moss Act unless they can prove without a shadow of a doubt that the specific aftermarket part caused whatever failure you have. I would try a few dealers. I did that in the past and found a local one that was mod-friendly. They never gave me any issues.
