Before hiding behind the Magnusom-Moss Act, be sure of what you are using... Have you ever actually read it?? And I don't mean the garbage put out by the aftermarket manufacturers, I mean the actual federal law.....
Nothing in there even discusses aftermarket power adding devices... That act is designed to prevent the factory from requiring you to use their products to maintain your vehicle. The act states that if the aftermarket part meets OEM specs, the manufacturer cannot void your warranty for its use. This basically applies to such things as oil, filters, coolant, spark plugs (on a gasser of course!) and other similar parts that will wear out over time...... There is not one single aftermarket power adder, regardless of brand, that meets OEM specs. If there was, we wouldn't be calling it a power adder, since it would not add any power..... As such, the use of them is not covered under the M-M Act, regardless of what your favorite retailer says....... Furthermore, the act specifically says that a manufacturer is not required to honor the warranty if you use non approved parts as long as they tell you upfront (which Ford clearly does in the owners manual).

If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen. - quote by Samuel Adams
Political correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end
