Warranty Work and No Issues

Just to set some people's mind at ease-those wondering about spartan being traceable or whatever, I took mine off to have a leaky oil pump fixed. They didn't say anything, ask any questions or anything. They did however reflash my truck, which I specifically asked them NOT to do so now I don't know if my tunes are gonna work. But they replaced the pump under warranty with no issues.

Very good info for those guys running their tunes. The SCT for 6.0's is untraceable as well.

A little reality check here for those with some common sense.

You guys can kid yourselves all day long, but trust me, if you have a meltdown caused by a tuner, the heads and pistons will be giving up the little secret just by their look and color, a color that a stock tuned truck doesn't make.....
Point being, don't think you are untraceable just because your service tech didn't say something. I guarantee he didn't even look or think to look, care to look, or have any reason to look. He probably doesn't even have the skills or the tools to know how to look or what to look for, and he probably couldn't care less.
It's when you have a breakdown that could be caused by running a hot tune too hard. When the field rep shows up, he's gonna know just exactly what to look for, and he's gonna know just what caused the problem....
So, don't feel so confident. Just drive your rig with a little respect for the power it makes and you will never have to face those issues.

How many miles did you have on your truck when they pulled the heads?

Oh yeah there was, you just didn't know what to look for..
Trust me, the field reps know exactly what to look for, and it ain't electronic.....

I'm not trying to start a brew-ha-ha, but for people who think they can get past the "man" from Ford with a failure due to a tuner is only kidding themselves.
I don't thinnk we will see anybody on these boards out there with problems because most of us are clued in on how to run a tuned diesel, but the kid who is unaware that 2,000 degrees probably means "lift" will get pinched hard when things go south...
