You should probably be sure that you are not going to seek further assistance from FX before installing the Huma, as I expect they will claim it voids the warranty.

I know the OP is not in the USA but for people in the USA installing a Huma regulator can not void the warranty under federal trade laws. Falls under this same rule https://www.ftc.gov/news-events/press-releases/2018/04/ftc-staff-warns-companies-it-illegal-condition-warranty-coverage

This is a very slippery slope, and one with which I have had some experience. True, the FTC reg attempts to offer protection to consumers who choose to use other maker's parts. But in practice, it often becomes a matter of how the maker claims the part in question may have been detrimental in some way. The argument may be without merit, but the time and cost of challenging it can put the consumer in a difficult position.

Depends on the size of the company and in this case it would be impossible to prove the Huma regulator does any harm. It would be foolish for the manufacturer to let this go to court.

Not a matter of going to court, that would never happen (unless it was a much larger monetary issue). The problem is dealing with one person after another until someone finally authorizes the work. Meanwhile, you have rifle that you can't shoot, or a car you can't drive, etc. You are totally right, it would be a dumb decision, but it happens. Sorry, didn't mean to get off topic. To the OP, sounds like you have a plan, good luck.
