He didn't know why some said serial # stopped other shops!
the 1 caveat, he quoted $500 to $600 to install gears & Puter flash !!
Sounds a little Rich for a Ol'Dog..

As for the exhaust; if it's installed properly & can't be proven the fault of a warranty problem it Okay !!

Did you get that "your warranty will be fine" in writing from them? Because Ford warranties the car that Ford built, not the one that someone else builds. They are warrantying their work, and why should we expect them to warranty the work or material of anyone else?

Why would a US law apply in another country?

This is getting to be too much of a headache problem for this Ol'Fart !!
I'm going to put this project on hold until @ least Spring !

One question that I do have;
Is the Ford ESP, not the same as the Factory warranty being extended & enhanced ????


I'm just wanting Mustang V6 to sing @ proper RPM's with the 6 speed Auto & after the install of Magnaflow catback !!

Wondering if you'd share your likes & dislikes of the 'Bama Tune !!
How much did it improve your driving experience ?
Seat of Pants feel ?
