I'd definately listen to Marc -- to me they are just trying to keep you from getting a tuner by trying to scare you. Should be no luck involved about the turbo being replaced -- it broke within 100K miles, so they should replace it no questions asked

good luck and tune away -- SCT is the way to go on the 6.0L!
