Exhaust mod's no warranty voids

I found this statement in the FAQ section via the Borla website. If this is true, than it's good to know... thought I'd share. Below is the statement...

Q. Will it void my factory warranty?

NO. Some cars even have BORLA systems as the OEM exhaust. All of our street Cat-Backs™, Rear Sections and Mufflers are 50-state emissions legal. In fact, it is illegal for a dealer to deny you the OE warranty because you have changed the exhaust system.

If your vehicle manufacturer fails to honor emission/warranty claims, contact EPA at (202) 260-2080 or www.epa.gov. If federal warranty protection is denied, contact the FTC at (202) 326-3128 or www.ftc.gov. For additional information, check out the following links:

* Consumers Bill of Rights
* What You Can Do If Your Warranty Is Denied
* Federal Warranty Laws
* Vehicle Manufacturer Warranty Contact Phone Numbers

The 4 lines above this with " * " are links available on the website... <<<<< edited here

Yea, im with ya here... i've actually contacted Borla and inquired as to how to make my exhaust just a little louder (if at all possible) nothing much... just a little is all I need.
