Default Is my Acura 50,000 mile warranty still available with aftermarket parts installed?

I have a 2006 Acura with an aftermarket intake i installed. the car is leased until this june and i recently burnt the clutch. i have a 5 year 50,000 mile warranty. will the dealership warranty still be covered and will they swap out my burnt out stock clutch for the brand new one?

The clutch isn't covered because it is a "normal wear and tear" item. Be careful what you do to it because there are mods that will completely void the warranty.

First, I personally wouldn't mod a lease car. Also the clutch is a wear item which is not covered by factory warranty. Also as far as aftermarket parts voiding warranties, the aftermarket part has to be proven to be the cause of the issue before they can void you warranty because of it.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnuson-Moss_Warranty_Act

The clutch is not covered under warranty because it is a wear and tear item like tires or wipers. The only time an aftermarket part will void the warranty is if it contributed to the problem...for instance...an aftermarket air intake will not void the warranty if your trying to get your radio fixed under warranty...know what I mean?
