there are ways to clear the memory after you've used an sct, otherwise they can find out, but if they do , yes, they can void your warranty.

probably wont with the exhaust, but i'd not take it to dealer without the cat.

Even if you re-flash your computer it leaves a mark that if the Techs want to find they can.. also the CAI and straight pipe will be a warning of other mods to the truck (Chip or Tune)

IF you want to mod your truck... screw the factory warranty and see if you can find a aftermarket one.

Yes you have voided your warranty from FoMoCo....however your dealership can still work with you, its up to them at this point, it all depends on them and your business relationship with them....if you take your truck there for regular work then they are more likely to work with you....give them a call and see what they say....heck look at Ol' Nate head blew his head gaskets and he had the programmer, intake, meth injection, exhaust and everything else on his truck and they are doing it under warranty...they are even putting in ARP (I think) head studs so it doesn't happen again....just call and see...good luck

not if you do the procedure i mentioned earlier, you must drain the charge from the 3 capacitors, and clear the KAM and you will be fine, then you have covered your tracks.

The tuner use will create a distinct wear patern on the cylinder walls and void the warranty. However, they will never see these marks unless they tear the engine down or look inside the cylinder through an injector port. If your warranty is almost out it isn't likely that the wear pattern will be established before it has run out anyway.
