cheapest in long run, modify or keep warranty?
Guys, what is your opinion.... my goal here is to have a truck that tows descent(im happy as of now but a little more performance would be good)... and an engine that lasts forever....
I run a DP tuner custom tow tune all the time, my truck tows a heavy trailer 90% of its miles... my truck is an 06 with only 24k miles... I installed a coolant filter long time ago as dealer was ok with that... i want to do studs/175s/powermax all at once sometime in the future when i have $10Gs to drop, but that will be some time... my question now is to live out the last two years of my 5 yr warranty, or install the gogo egr delete stage 1 kit(which will have some performance increase) and an Oil filtration and CCV mod... the dealer says these will void my warranty but at this point my truck has not ever given me a spot of trouble and i doubt it will.... I dont fully understand how much damage if any the EGR system is doing to my truck, the concept of pumping sooty exhaust back into the engine cannot be good..... anyway..... what is going to save me the most money in the long run, keep the warranty next two years just in case something major goes? or just give it up and delete the egr and get oil filtration, and start keeping my engine way cleaner sooner?
thanks for advice...
ps, im already decided on the gogo stage 1 and the oil bypass system from previous research so the brands/kits are not variables in the quesiton.... thanks
