Booms point is if you are into modifying you are likely not too concerned with a factory warranty.

So, there are two options - ask random unknown people on forums and gather their opinions -or- look up Magnuson Moss Warranty Act, the fed law governing warranties, and reach your own conclusions.

If you are not really familiar at a basic / foundational level with how these drivetrains work and are therefore uncomfortable with modifying, don't do it. No sense in taking away from enjoying your new ride by doing something that will cause you to worry.
Don't worry, I got Mr_boom's point.

And I'm pretty sure he understood my joking response to his "who cares about a warranty lol" comment. (Half-joking, really. Most of us do care about the warranty. Even -- and this may surprise you -- those of us who know "how these drivetrains work.")

So, to paraphrase someone you know and love:

If you are not really familiar at a basic / foundational level with how humor works and are therefore uncomfortable responding in kind, don't do it. No sense in taking away from enjoying your feeling of superiority by doing something that will cause you to worry. ;)

Wow, check this out!! It’s nearby where I work and when I clock out, I’m heading over to this gas station!!
Prepare for some sticker shock. I was mixing 101 and 91 octane to get 93 in my ATS-V until I couldn't stomach the cost anymore.

This was last summer. I'm sure it's $10 a gallon by now. :cry:

Agreed. I'm super pleased especially compared to stock

Stock best 0-60 - 6.56

Impressive considering your wheels and tires. Any idea how much they weigh?

That said... who cares about a warranty lol... if you're modding or increasing performance and worried about a warranty, leave your crap stock 🤣
some of us are not as mechanically inclined. Dulce says hi to Beef!;)

Amazing performance! from a 4 cylinder pickup. Wasn't too long ago a V-8 sports car couldn't match those numbers. I would bet with stock rims & tires it would shave off .25 from both times.

Are folks who worry about tuning impacting their warranty wrong to be concerned?

Here are four websites that discuss the issue. Two say that tuning will cause warranty issues and two say that it might -- or that the dealer might claim it does and you might have to get a lawyer to challenge that.

ECU Tuning On Warranty & Insurance: Is It Legal & How To Reverse (carperformanceboss.com)
Stage 3's Stance on Tuning and Your Vehicle's Warranty (stage3motorsports.com)
Will Tuning Void My Warranty? - Superchips
Not All Aftermarket Parts Will Void Your Warranty (roadandtrack.com)

It's not a simple question, and just reading the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act won't answer it for you.

@Mrboom_5.0's advice is good: leave your Maverick stock if you're concerned about the warranty.

Reading this thread gave me flashbacks to dsmtuners.com. I still have a talon tsi and 2 eclipse gsx with 6 bolt 4g63 powertrains. Is the weight bias of the awd maverick good enough to justify searching for 100 plus hp gains?

If you put a bigger intercooler on the Maverick you will get a whole lot more out of the pull times. Ford has a great set up for the most part, the intercooler is not very good thou. I don't know any upgrade for Maverick yet. But on the 2L EB in the Focus ST, the aftermarket one increased HP by about 15 HP and the intake manifold temps stayed down near ambient outside temps. Also I'm not saying to increase the hot or cold side pipes size. Or even changing the airbox or exhaust. All of that will increase power. But cooler air at the intake manifold will provide the most for the least overall.

Cool to see the tune giving that much. I’ve heard different things from different tuners in intake and downpipe adding power on these. Regardless good gains from a quick tune. An aftermarket intercooler will be a must. Hopefully some turbo upgrades are doable soon. 300-350 whp would be all if want but it would be fun in this thing.

Intake will be negligible as far as gains. Same with downpipe. Between the two, another 10 MAYBE 15 whp and lb/ft of torque.

Intercooler is definitely a 100% must. Turbos will be tricky due to the electric wastegate, what I'm thinking I/we'll end up doing is welding one onto a larger turbo

I'd have to pull one back off and weigh again. But I know they are 11lbs heavier than the stocks, per corner. So 44lbs total. Which ricer math equates to roughly 160+ of unsprung weight
