You bought a $55,000 truck and want to supercharge it ($3,000+ more) and you're worried about the factory warranty?

Something's wrong with this picture.

You need to understand that the blower won't void your warranty and if you don't know about the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act 15 U.S.C. 2302(C) you need to. It requires that if you are turned down for warranty work due to a mod you have done then the dealer (or whomever) must be able to prove that the mod caused the failure.
If not they are liable to honor the warranty.

Find a copy of it online and read it before you do mods like blowers, "Cold Air Intakes", etc.

Just get the 3/36,000 Powertrain Warranty from Whipple $575 extra.

The rest of the truck will still have the Ford Warranty.

Having a great dealer is key, if your having any issues with after- market add-ons.

I went whipple right away (7 miles on the odometer) and have been smiling ever since. Stock it was slightly slower than my Ecoboost and WAY less powerful the my 6 liter Deisel Harley 350. NOW, I wouldn't trade it for anything. I may have to cross the warranty bridge someday but everyday I get in this thing and GO is a pleasure.
