can an aftermarket exhaust void the warranty?

I did a search but didn't find anything... can an after-market exhaust impact the warranty??

technically yes if they can find some way to prove that your after market exhaust caused the problem.

It would be hard for a problem to occur because of an aftermarket exhaust.

These days with dealers trying to get out of every problem or pulling shady stuff you never know. Just like how Davo and some other member's dealers refused to give them new transmissions until they experienced complete failure.

Unless you've already removed it, the warning about aftermarket parts voiding the warranty is stuck to the top left of your windshield

Just enjoy the car and have some fun until it wears off. Then that is the time to think about aftermarket parts. Some people may take a month or weeks. For me, I think, it will take about a couple of years then I will think about the aftermarket parts.
