NO! Only if they can prove in court that the ripper caused the problem.
Can a rip-shifter cause oil pump failure? I dont think so.
Check out the laws Federal and your state (consumer law.)

Check out the Magg-Moss Warranty Act.........the only way they can decline warranty is if they can PROVE the aftermarket part was a direct cause of your problems.

actually they don't have to prove a thing...all they have to do is claim the part caused the failure,and believe me they will as an example if you take a car with 100 shot NOS in to the dealer and tell them the engine or tranny blew GM will not spend one cent trying to prove a thing they will just tell you that the nitrous caused the problem
ask the guy on here who had his warranty voided for putting Royal Purple in the rear end,Do you think GM proved that it was the different lube that caused his rear end to fail?
Why take chances? I save all my original parts and if something goes wrong with say... the transmission on my car I will take the GMM off and put the stock unit back on before I take it back to the dealer

Seems most legal advice is that the manufacturer DOES have to prove the part caused the failure. The problem is that GM or whomever typically has much deeper pockets than the rest of us.

No one has deeper pockets than the government. When the government creates a law (an act is in fact a law), they in turn must enforce it. Yes the dealer (and GM) may have packed Royal Purple up some guy's rectum. But, did he use the legal system, or did he just take it lying down? I personally have taken these types of things and people to the matt and won and at no cost to me (except a little time). I would not hesitate to do it again.
