Ford made improvements to the 4.6 from 1996 to 2010. Should they have left the engine set up like the 1996 engine for all of those years? And you can justify your anger if you want, but when you modify, or increase power on any vehicle, that includes the Camaro, Challenger, Corvette, etc. your probability for mechanical failure increases.
I highly doubt that any other manufacturer would honor warranties if their vehicles were modified. You guys think that it's just Ford? And if you think that a modification has to directly relate to the failure, you are sadly mistaken. Any drivetrain modification can be viewed as violating the warranty, whether it caused it or not.
Some guys on this site spend as much money as it would take to replace the entire engine on modifications, yet don't think that all that compromises anything. This isn't anything new. You just think it is because you haven't seen it before. Owning my seventh Mustang GT, I have seen these same issues since 1986. Mechanical problems after modification, and expect the manufacturer to comply. It's not going to happen.
Of course some people have legitimate problems, but many want their decisions to modify covered under these warranties. You might want to go back and read all of the warranty information before you think that they are wrong and you are right.
