Everybody that I know of is using spartan. The diablo has never been a great tuner so I doubt they are now either.

Any programmer will potentially mess up the warranty. Ask your dealer if they will void the warranty because of a programmer. You can leave the DPF on with some Spartan tunes, or take it off with different tunes.

Warranty smoranty! j/j.

It all depends on who you talk to. Some say it doesn't mess with the warranty and other say it does. It also depends on who you know at the dealership. I personally have never dealt with the dealerships because I can't stand for anyone else to work on my truck. I think one of the sponsors on here sells the spartan and I'm sure they can answer all of your questions. Hopefully one if them will pop in.

Any programer, DPF delete or not will void your warranty..........I have heard of a 08 with a Diablo tuner "blowing" the engine...........

Yeah I know, it says it won't leave a foot print on the computer. Spartan does this as well......and it very well may not leave a trace in the computer, but the computer is not the only sign of tuner. There are going to be things like a pre-mature replacement of DPF, burn marks on the pistons, codes the don't throw a Check Engine Light for things like overboost......
