I emailed Mountune this morning because I saw a badge on their website that says "Warranty Friendly Product" and wanted to know exactly how that worked.
*This poor girl is stock except for the removal of the Fiesta badge. Does that count as a mod?
There is supposedly a intake/tune package offered through their website that bumps power for the Fiesta ST up to around 215 HP/~235 ft lbs of torque which sounds like warranty status is not affected.
Link to one of the products:
The response I received this morning:
Thanks for your interest in our products. Certain items we offer can be installed at your Ford dealer with out voiding your factory power train warranty. I have added the a copy of the joint Ford / Mountune warranty for your review. The first two pages would cover the Fiesta.
Some products, especially those that increase the power would need to be covered by this warranty otherwise you could run into problems with your factory warranty coverage if there was an issue.
Products like the charge pipe upgrade may be added to the list of covered parts in the future but as you can imagine, having a range of products approved by Ford is a monumental task and does take some time.
However parts like the charge pipe upgrade increase engine response so there is no issue of that product causing harm.
The Ford Mountune warranty information was just released last week in the USA so at the moment, many Ford dealers are not yet aware of the program. In the coming weeks, Ford Racing will introduce the line to all Ford dealers in North America so they will soon be aware of the products and their warranty friendly status.
In the meantime, feel free to show the attached document to your dealer and and enjoy performance
without the hassles of putting your warranty at risk.
As for the FAQ, we are working on that and hope to have something in place soon. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or comments. We appreciate the feedback.

He also attached a document from Mountune/Ford Racing, which I'll try to attach here!
If anyone has thoughts about how this will actually work with warranty stuff, let me know!
