Wanting SCT but worried about warranty work

I was thinking about buying the SCT and guages from Raul and getting some custom tunes for it but I am worried that the dealer won't honor the warranty anymore. Anybody had problems with warranty work after using the SCT with custom tunes?

10" Fabtech lift W/Fabtech traction bars

(Soon to be turbo back)
Triple gauge pilar w/ DiPricol Boost, Trans Temp, EGT
SCT X3 w/Eric's Street, Tow, and Extreme Street

More to come.....

Just return it back to stock before you go to the dealer. It doesn't even take 5 minutes to change it back.

So as long as I return it to stock they will never know? When I get the SCT what tunes should I get? I was thinking extreme street, street, and aggresive tow. Thanks for the info and help!

What I did is I called the dealer and talked to them (not the booobs at the desk) and asked them what will void "their warranty" I didn't give them any info about me. if they said no on certain things then I just said thank you and hung up.

It doesn't hurt to ask.
