Quick Question about DPF/Tuner (going to ford this week)

I have to take my 08 f250 into the dealer this week to possibly have the radiator replaced at fords expense. I am at 97,000 miles but I think i have talked them into it.

My question is, I have SCT livewire and dpf delete installed. Do I need to take this off? Could I possibly just take the SCT off without the dpf delete? Btw the dpf delete has the sensors in it. I am trying to be as nice as I can since they are going out of their way to fix this for me. Suggestions please?

I would take it all off just in case. It is really up to your ford dealership if they will fix it with warrenty if you have that on. If it was me i wouldnt take the chance of being stuck with the bill

my dealer would not have an issue with it, i would remove the head unit and take it in.............but that's my dealer......right before i tuned i asked the service manager on how they delt with tuned trucks... he told me as long as its not related they would not have a problem....when fomo see's a radiator warranty replacement they dont bat an eye cause its common.... but if you come in with a 45,000 mile truck and the tranny is shot, not something they see too much, then they are going to want to look into it, in that case your tuner will be suspect... I took mine in for a failed seat heater while fully tuned... they fixed the seat and told me how cool they thought my exhaust was.........
