Angry 03 F350 6.0L Turbo/injectors

I just got my truck back today from dealer....went in for what was thought to be warranty work for poor performance....came out with dusted turbo....2 injectors (at least) bad....possible piston damage....y-pipe shot.....I was told that since I installed AFE cold air intake....i voided my waranty....they claimed that they filter flows more air and subsequently flows more dirt....this is what the tech told me....even though the air filter is better than original...they are still pointing finger at it. Anyone have any luck beating ford on this?? If so...how?? Have found a lot of people online that have the exact same problem.....Ford just looking for a cheap way out.

I'm getting a AFE Stage II myself so I've been looking into just that. Fight them and you'll win.

Oh one more thing -
AFE claims their filtration systems FILTER and flow better than stock, so either Ford is wrong (my bet) or AFE is false advertising. Either way one of them is going to fix your rig and my money is on Ford having to do it.

I know what you're going through. Check out my posts "Warranty nightmare" and "Warranty voided". Ford seems to be looking for ANY excuse to hang the repair bill on the owner.
