I thought it was the insurance situation which killed off the Escort Cosworth , a small
car with outrageous power output as standard.
Q o replacement panel air filters that give
a bit more power, invalidate the vehicles warranty ?
According to the instructions supplied with my K & N panel air filter. Legal precedents have been set in the UK and USA where rulings were made that in the case of consumables ie tyres /plugs/ air filters,
providing the items were designed to be fitted to the specific vehicle - warranties would apply ! Hence the existence of pattern parts suppliers.
Well, if an engine failed during the manufacturers warranty period [say from lubrication failure] and a pattern oil filter was fitted, I think questions would be asked.....the same goes for a spark plug if a piston had failed :evilgrin:
