Just put it back to stock, it should not take you that long, I can do mine in under 2 hours, by myself, do not give a dealer any way to void your truck, to me it is just not worth the chance on loosing my warranty, my dealer is somewhat mod friendly except for the DPF/Cat delete, make sue you have the venturi mod for your radiator, to me I will take anything I can get from them as long as I a warranty with Ford.

My dealer did not care at all when the replaced my radiator. He told me as long as my mods are not what is determined to cause the problem he does not care what is done. Example being you bring the truck back with a blown turbo, head gaskt etc... But for a leak or something simple my dealer has not had any problems. I called them before I brought it back as anonomous caller questioning it.
