Programmer footprint

My first post here, found this site while looking for upgrades on the new ride.
Just traded for an 08 Lariat with a 6.4 and was looking at performance options, probably gonna go with a Banks air box, somebodys delete pipe and Banks exhaust but was wondering if any of the current programmers didn't leave a footprint when removed. I own a tire shop/garage so install/removal of the exhaust/airbox isn't an issue, but the programmer could be a problem with my local dealer, they are pretty much sticklers on that. I traded an 06 6.0 dually with the above mods and loved the way it ran but never had a warranty issue to take it in for. The 6.4 being a new player I'm a little hesitant to make myself problems if I don't have to.
Any and all information would be appriciated.

There are programmers out there that won't leave a foot print in the computer, but thats not the only thing that the dealership looks for.......so if you worried about warranty then to be honest leave the truck stock or roll the dice and ask the dealership about what they will cover with a programmer

Welcome to the .org. I hear the Spartan isnt leaving a footprint. I dont know first hand but there is a few guys around here that have had their truck in the shop and the dealer didnt say anything about it. Now it may be their dealer didnt look. I dont know. Its the only one I have heard of that may not leave a foot print. I have one and am waiting till this weekend to install it. I hope I never have to find out if the dealer can find it or not.
