We had several members replace the exhaust system on the other forumZ and it was never a warranty issue. I see this is your first post so why not do an introductory post in the newbie section and tell us about you and your Avenger. Post pics to, we like pics. I almost forgot, welcome to the best Avenger sit on the net.

It's illegal for a dealer to void a warranty because you install aftermarket parts...

However, If the installed aftermarket part directly caused a warranted part to fail. Then you are liable for the repair of the part. The warranty is null and void for the damaged part.

search for "Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act".

This act basically allows for the existence of aftermarket vendors and helps protects consumers.

Thanks DM6156 I was trying to find info on that, I have been wanting to chip my car und change the exhaust but was unsure of the warranty. And of course the dealership is not willing to encourage modifications.

as long as the upgrades don't damage parts under warranty, you'll be fine. If you run into any issue with dealer complaining about upgrades, simply remind them of the law.

I know some dealers do sell and install performance parts that are non mopar but most don't.

I've not listen to the super 40, but it comes down to how loud do you want it inside the car.

I'm getting a flowmaster 50 series SUV installed on my dakota on wednesday.

The 50 SUV is a little quieter inside the cab than the 50 delta, at least, from what I've been told and read online.

check out the flowmaster website and look a the exterior sound volume and interrior resonance.

There's a fellow that goes to a forum that I belong too that has modded his exhaust. There are more pictures than this, If I find them I'll post them.

I see it won't allow the whole address. What's missing is Dodge talk .com. No spaces. I have to space it because it wouldn't post the name together.
