New Car - Modifications and Factory Warranty?

Is there anything you can do to these cars that don't void the warranty? I just went to price a ford performance kit and they told me it would void my entire warranty.

Thoughts?

It will void your warranty is the crappy dealers way of getting out of fixing your car at their expense under warrenty. If you read the act you are allowed to replace parts with ones that are better quality, now things like turbos and S/C's will generally hurt your warrenty, but if your tail light shorts and is inop it should be covered under warrenty as a S/C generally won't make a tail light short, but the broke rod won't be covered as the S/C and aggressive tune were probably part of the cause.
