cambo, I would not even take a chance taking it to the dealer still tuned, your just asking to get your warranty canceled if they notice it's tuned, if it was me I would go buy it and install it, it might be a hassle to return it to stock but much safer, some dealers are looking. My 02 cents.

X2 Buy it, like 28 bucks (if memory serves), put it on yourself. Did mine twice.

What is the problem with the belt tensioner. I have never looked at mine. How many miles did yours have on it before you had to replace the tensioner? I only 28,000 miles on my job 1 truck.

Is the problem the actual spring loaded tensioner or one of the idlers. I took my Job1 F450 out of winter storage and it has a belt/ squeeking it didn't have last year?
