Programmer...No Delete???

Here's the deal guys. I had 08 6.4. Did the whole delete CAT and went with straight pipe / programmer package deal. Make my truck awesome an nobody could beat me. Truck broke down but warranty was voided due to delete CAT. Got rid of the truck now and got me a 2011 F250 FX4 really wanting a programmer for this one but really second guessing myself about the warranty issue. Now here's my question. Is there anyway I can run just the Programmer without the CAT Delete and run it that away an if something were to happen simply take the programmer out to take to the dealership? Pros? Cons? Or just simply wait till warranty goes out on truck an go with full CAT Delete + Programmer? Thanks guys.

From what I read in the manual, the computer records that a tuner was installed and this information can't be erased so your warranty would be voided.

Go to Innovative Diesel Performance and purchase yourself the Torq2 fuel rail box. Apparently it's not traceable and if gives the truck some good oomph. I installed one the other week

If you tune, just be prepared to deal with a potential warranty denial.

According to my dealership's head diesel tech, Ford is watching this motor like a hawk in regards to warrantly claims. Ford needs this engine to be successful, and if they find any evidence that something outside of the OEM specs lead to an issue, they will be quick to deny a claim.

Now, this could just be the tech being a bit of a hard ***, but he has always been straight up with me before.

If you can afford to play, then by all means, knock yourself out.

Who says it's not traceable ?
Anything that reads/writes to the ECM is traceable because the ECM records everything

Its all good. I really don't know what happened to it i never got it fixed. I ran SCT Livewire for about 9 months. Engine started knocking an turbo was jacked up. Cost so much to fix i just traded it in. Warrenty was voided. I left the service dept and went to the sales dept and got me a 6.7. I did race alot prolly did all the wear an tear there.

I would like to know more about the torq2 and if its traceable.
My first thought is that if it is adjusting the rail pressure or anything else for that matter, couldn't that be stored and found by the dealer?
Could the ecm throw up a red flag when the rail pressure was at one time higher than factory limits? Or does the torq2 tell the computer what it wants to hear?
