short shifter

I know if you mod your car they will void the warranty. But will they void it for installing a short shifter. I want to install the short shifter but don't want to void my warranty.

According to the Magnuson-moss warranty act, a dealer can't void a warranty or deny a claim unless the mod caused the malfunction. If you tranny snaps, that can probably pin it on the short shifter, but if you valve cover gasket blows, they can't.

if that's all you want done just take it to your dealer. It will cost more but it will be warranteed.
