The answer is no, unless they are deemed the root of the problem.

so what about adding a turbo or supercharger that would void the warranty right? or does the same rule apply to them as far as being deemed the root of the problem is concerned

If you add a turbo or supercharger, pretty much every problem could be traced back to that, voiding your warranty. Bolt ons like exhaust/intake shouldn't be worried about much, FI, definately.

gotcha thanks a lot man ill wait till the warranty runs out to add all of the transmission upgrades and turbo i did a bit of math with the SRT hi power or whatever its called intake and the dragger 2 and i should have about 240ish hp after adding both of those how much would i have? i mean if i have like 240hp thats good enough and im content till i can add the turbo and tranny stuff 3 years from now

Same rule. If you add a turbo or supercharger, the manufacturer can refuse to service your car under warranty if said turbo or supercharger is the cause of the problem.

I.E.: If you add a turbo one day and later, your dome light goes out, they can't blame the turbo because the two systems in question are unrelated.

Dealers could get crazy. They could do something like blame your standalone that came with your tubo kit for overruning the battery and burning the dome light.

the reason your results are sucking is you have to look at more then the first page of results i did a search for Void Warranty and starting on the 2nd page i found 50 relevant posts (yes 50 and i coulda found more) thats why people tell you to search.
