anything that you do that causes or contributes to the failure of a part.
voids warranty on that part.

so if you touch it and it fails then there is no warranty.
there are no steedfast rules or guidlines the onus will be on you to satisfy them that the failure waqs not caused by the mods

The main issue is tuning it. Most aftermarket parts are covered by a warranty that makes up for anything voided on the factory warranty. Not so with a tune. Although, so long as you go to a good tuning house, it's very unlikely it will cause any faults.

It will help to read the warranty, preferably with a lawyer. It is completely possible [and legal] to provide a completely unclaimable warranty using only fine print...

You'd have to do some major mods to completely void a warranty on a car... or simply not service it according to the book.
But putting on a sports exhaust or lowering the car doesnt void the lot, it just excludes certain parts that 'could' be affected by those mods (but even then it's dealer to dealer).

What mods are you considering, and perhaps we can give more specific answers?

I was told by a dealer last weekend that catback and intake are ok, anything else would probably cause warranty dramas.

As has been said many times before, it depends on individual dealers. Some will allow no mods and others will allow many mods.
