Wait, Mountune is Ford's official performance division? Is warranty void if you install these products?
Ford partnered with Mountune to bring official upgrades:

According to edmunds.com:
One good thing about Mountune's tuning packages is that most of the performance mods will be offered with a Ford Racing warranty when installed through the Ford dealer network.

According to a dealer (In Toronto) they (Ford Canada) have no affiliation with Mountune. Does anyone know if Mountune products are supported and will not void warranty in Canada? Thanks

If mods are not approved, Ford will deny any warranty claims. This goes for Mountune as well of course.

Not true unless that part causes a failure... and can be proven to have caused an alleged failure. Contrary to popular belief, manufacturers cannot void your warranty if you drive into the service department with a non approved part installed. They can however note your vin # and if you have issues later can "try" to deny warranty work, but it is an illegal practice to void warranties in that manner. A few years ago when the Mitsu EVO first came out in the states (I think it was the MK VII), dealers and or Mitsu reps started hitting the drags strips and noting cars that had been used for racing. In that case, it goes under a completely different legal classification and they can void the manufacturers warranty based on how the end user uses the vehicle. If the "usage" does not fall under the legal warranty agreement, then they don't have to honor it.

If you are worried about your warranty, never drive into a dealer service bay with any mods visible. In other words, put it back to stock before going in for warranty work. I haven't had to visit a dealer service department since 2005 for any of the vehicles I have owned during that time period. Every dealer seems to have different policy regarding modifications. Find yourself a mod friendly dealer (perhaps one that does the installs and tuning) and have them do all your work. Some of them are cool... others, not so much. :)
