???'s For those with Tuners & DPF Delete

This is for those with a tuner running the DPF delete:

1. What do y'all do when you take the truck into the dealer for service or warranty work? (I'm only at 50k miles) I'm assuming you can't swap out the DPF delete pipe each time. Do you reprogram the truck back to stock?

2. If you leave it all on, do the service guys care?

3. Does Ford constantly release new programs/updates? With my '09 Dodge Ram 1500, it seemed like every other time I was at the dealer they had new updates to apply, and sometimes they didn't even ask, so I always had to return it to stock before I took it in.

I really want to get a tuner and DPF delete, just making sure I understand what it will entail...

1. Most people put the DPF back on the truck and return the truck's ECM back to stock.

2. Most dealerships are going to void your warranty for doing a DPF delete and tuner if they catch you.

3. Yes, Ford releases flashes for the trucks occasionally.

1. That's a lot of work for each time you bring the truck in.....

Most will just swap back. I think it all depends on the dealer. I know that I have talked to my dealer(s) and one said yes return it to stock and another said as long as if you have issues nothing is related to the tuning then no big deal but he also said better to be safe than sorry.

Some say to wait until you have run the warranty out or just be prepared to do some swapping back and forth.

Few hours of work to keep your warranty seems worth it to me.

Most people only take their truck back to the dealer when they absolutely have to.

What part of the warranty does it void, the 100,000 mile internal engine? I know a lift kit also voids your warranty, but only the suspension components. Will a DPF removel also void trans, rear and front diffs or anything of that kind?

It would void your entire warranty. 100,000 mile powertrain, 60,000 mile transmission, and probably your 36,000 mile bumper to bumper.

So I probably wait until my warranty I'd up before doing it or be willing to install and remove anytime it has to go in to the shop. Only problem for me is that I won't be putting more than 10k miles/year.

I could see the 100K engine, 60K powertrain, being an issue, but it would be very hard for them not to warranty the AC or something like the radio during the 36K.

I planned on buying an extended warranty at 60k miles anyways, so that's when I'll probably install the tune/delete. Those guys usually aren't as strict about stuff.
