SCT and Warranty???????

I am going to take my truck in to have some work done under warranty. I have the edge insight for gauges. I am not really worried about that voiding the warrany. But I have the SCT X3 with custom tunes. The guy I talked to at the dealership told me that as long as the computer didnt pick it up it will be ok. If I program it back to stock will the computer be able to tell if its been messed with?

all there computer is going to see is that your batteries have been disconnected after you return it to stock, you'll be fine, just dont leave the X3 in the truck when you take it to the dealer

Last time I had the truck in for some warranty work I left the SCT on the passenger seat. When I was picking the truck up the Service Manager pulled me aside and asked me about the tuner. I was honest and said that yes I used the tuner. Figured he would deny the rest of my warranty, but he was looking for a tuner for his '05 and wanted to know what I thought about the sct. I loaded up the Extreme street and took him for a drive.

Will it void the warranty, yes it will. If your dealership is cool about it and you make sure to return the truck to stock it is not a problem.

I've heard of a few people who left tuners on there seats and have been denied warranty work because of it.

Thanks guys. I am taking it in to have an exhaust leak fixed. When I was putting in my egt prope I noticed that it was leaking where the manifold nolts to the head. I'm guessing its the gasket. Also I am having them look at my turbo cause there has been oil sprayed up onto my hood. I am guessing it is from the turbo. Anyone had these issues? How long do ya'll think it will be in the shop for?

I had an oily residue on my hood one time and all it turned out to be was a bad O-ring on the engine fuel filter.

Was your blue rubber boots on the turbo and the one going into the intercooler greasy?

Yeah, there is some grease around the boots, not a whole lot though. My leak was actually hitting the bottom of my hood and blowing up on my windshield.

Well it passed!! The guy at the Ford dealership was pretty cool. I asked him if anything showed up when he checked for the warranty and all he said was that he was the warranty thing. He asked me if I had a programmer and I told him that I did. He said the reason he asked was because Ford has updated stock tunes. He said that if I have a programmer it may interfear. He is also going to replace the tube that goes from the intercooler to the intake with a metal one. He told me that all I would need for the oil leak is probably just the blue turbo boots. He told me that the exhaust leak is probably not worth messing cause once the manifold are unbolted and bolted back up they are hard to seal, plus the leak was pretty small ( I cant hear it, I just noticed it while I was putting in my egt probe).

He also said that he would look over the whole truck to see if anything else needs to be fixed before my warranty runs out.
