Will they void the warrenty

So back with a Ford (the last Ford 2000 F350 went through 5 Auto Trannys) after 3 years with a Durmax that drank a quart of oil every 100 miles.

So the new ride is a 08 6 speed manual F350 SWD Crew 4x4 Lariat package.
The exhaust cleaning program has to go. Is there something out there that will not leave a foot print?
What about a exhaust brake to slow this thing down?
What else is there that will help it out. I haul a 3400lb slide in camper with a 18 foot car trailer loaded with toys,
I did buy the extended warrenty 4 years/48,000mi. I don't want to give them any reason to void it.

If they catch you with a tuner installed, they can void your warranty. It's up to them. Key word though is "catch".

What ever you do, revert it back to stock prior to having any warranty work done.

Yea, Spartan should not leave a traceable foot print as long as they just do a normal dealer scan. If they really went in debth they could probably find it.

The list:
1. 5" downpipe back exhaust
2. AFE Stage II or S&B cold air intake
3. Spartan Diesel Tech tuner (you choose the tunes you get)
4. Maybe a clutch depending on the power you go with
5. BD Power MIGHT be coming out with an exhaust break, no recent word on it though

***Most important thing is to put the truck back to stock (exhaust, cold air intake, tuner, everything) before you take it to the dealer for any kind of warranty work. Ford is probably going to be trying harder than ever to void warranty work. So the truck would probably need to look as it did the day you drove it off the lot.

The biggest question is wether or not your dealer is MOD friendly. Our local dealers have became very acceptable to the idea of DPF Delete, in fact one of the dealers has sent me quite a few customers. They will work on and warranty the the trucks with the DPF removed unless its a major job they will request you put the DPF back on in-case one of the "Suits" shows up to approve the warranty work.

Cobbs is 100% right. the dealer is smart enough and they can tell if you take your dpf on and off. fresh scratch marks on the bolts/nuts and the dpf not matching the rest of your exhaust. These techs are not dumb and can pick that stuff out. You just have to go to a few dealers and find a mod friendly one. For example I have a dpf delete and Had a injector stick open and it burned a hole in the piston and they are replacing my whole motor heads turbo and PCM. If its a good dealer they will do it. If its a ****ttty dealer that doesnt give a crap about there customers or techs then they will void your warranty.

I found an oil leak on my truck last night. Only has 35900 miles on it. So I just put it back to stock and should be good for the warranty?
