Any change you make to the exhaust will void the warranty of that part of the exhaust. If you put new mufflers on, it'll void that part but shouldn't affect the convertors and so on. If you do a full swap to headers it'll void the exhaust warranty but shouldn't affect the drivetrain warranty.
I went with an axle-back exhaust and couldn't be happier on my RS.
