I have gotten different answers on this from a few dealerships. If you have installed one have you had any other warranty issues not being covered because of it? I’m am/was going to have my dealer install the FPP supercharger on my new truck. The paperwork shows the supercharger kit has a 3yr/36 months warranty when installed by Ford or ASE mechanic. So does that only cover the supercharger parts? It doesn’t say anything about the original truck warranty being affected by this modification. The new vehicle warranty has a disclaimer about adding performance parts.

Just curious if anyone has first hand knowledge either way. Thanks

When I talked to a couple of area dealers that do SC installations, it was a gray area for sure. I never got a straight answer. I even contacted FP and they referred me to Whipple directly who explained it in great detail. I haven't had to take my truck back to Ford yet (knock on wood) post my FP/Whipple install to know what will happen though.

The way my Ford service manager explained it to me is if a window motor goes out or the radio stops working or the ABS fails or the paint starts flaking, etc, that's still covered by your new vehicle warrantee.

Thanks for the reply. I got about the same replies from the dealer also. Any issues with factory defective items in the motor through the driveline system that would be originally covered are most likely not covered and will be blamed on the supercharger Install. Dealer may have some wiggle room but you never know.

Warranty is always a touchy issue. I always advise anyone to go in it with the expectation of footing any bill if failures arise. It's a conservative approach to keep you mindful of the risk involved.

Exactly what @diambo4life said…. You play you pay as they say… That said… by going with a FP/Whipple SC the tune created by Whipple for FP has the 3/36 warrantee in mind. That’s not to say you can’t break something, but it has the factory rev and speed limit as well as all the nanny’s in place to help. It’s the main reason I went with the FP kit.

I agree for sure.
